Workforce information and planning

We play a key role in workforce planning to ensure there is an appropriately trained paediatric medical workforce to deliver safe and sustainable services for children in the UK - in the present and in the future.

As demand on the paediatric workforce continues to increase, change is urgently needed.

Our Workforce Census delivers a unique overview of consultant and SAS doctor work-life, providing the basis for three key recommendations: develop a bespoke, nation-based workforce strategy; support new ways of working and wellbeing; and place equality, diversity and inclusion at the heart of planning.
