Employers in the health and social care sector in Humber, Coast and Vale are often unable to permanently recruit all the staff they require to deliver their services, resulting in heavy and increasing reliance on temporary staffing.
Difficulty getting and keeping staff with the skills and experience we need is the root cause of many of the problems we face today; financial, safety, performance and quality. We need to work together to address these issues.
Through the Humber, Coast and Vale Partnership, we are developing a comprehensive strategy and approach to meeting our workforce needs both now and in the future.
An Excellence Centre brings together employers from the NHS, independent and voluntary sectors (and high quality training providers) to coordinate and implement high quality skills programmes. By working together we can provide more effective recruitment, development and progression for health and care staff.
The Excellence Centre framework will help us to work together to create system-wide solutions that can be implemented more locally.
