The future shape of the nursing and midwifery workforce
Nursing and midwifery forms the largest part of the healthcare workforce. In the NHS, nurses and midwives make up around 30 per cent of the total workforce. Many also work in other parts of the public sector, the independent and third sectors.
The CfWI has undertaken a range of projects to support and stimulate debate in the health and social care system on the key issues that impact on the shape of the nursing and midwifery workforce.
