The agreed aims of the programme are as follows: 

  • To understand the workforce aspects (challenges and opportunities) of the clinical work streams, place based programmes and other cross cutting programmes across Cheshire and Merseyside, understanding the implications and the scale of change required.

  • To develop key programmes of work on those elements of the workforce agenda, which are better done together, including the development of a Cheshire and Merseyside employment offer and the streamlining of workforce processes and systems.RSH EBP 150

  • Identify the workforce implications of the back office / Carter programmes of work, including the opportunities of having a consistent payroll and Occupational health offer.

  • Develop a Cheshire and Merseyside integrated workforce and development plan and strategy including identification of the workforce implications of system and organisational change such as restructuring, mergers and acquisitions, integrated care systems and new models of care and care delivery.

  • Understand the impact of national skills shortages on the wider system and develop strategies to minimise the impact.

  • Create a knowledge repository which enables anyone working in the health and care system to engage with each other, share best practice and research in workforce issues and celebrate success/ share learning across Cheshire and Merseyside.
