In 2018 the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) turned 70. Due to advances in treatments, standards and administrative policies over this time, coupled with a growing and aging population, pressures facing the service are greater than they have ever been.
With waiting times across the board still low by historical standards, but on the rise, and a slowly growing financial budget, the NHS is aiming to take practical action to take the strain off of its various departments in the coming years.
The challenges faced by the NHS’ HR department have been great and show no sign of easing.
You are tasked with reviewing the accompanying NHS case study in order to compile a 2000 word portfolio for the Head of England’s NHS HR department. The focus of the portfolio will be placed on the following 3 strategic People Management areas currently being addressed by the NHS:
Area 1: Leadership and Management Area 2: Training and Development Area 3: Talent Management
Special consideration should be given to: Key theoretical models within the 3 areas and their application to the current NHS scenario The role and priorities of NHS Management and the HR function in supporting Management The different internal and external influences on the 3 highlighted areas Any relevant recommendations the portfolio highlights.Notes for Guidance
The portfolio should be written in a report format and comprise of 3 clear sections. You are also expected to conclude with relevant and appropriate recommendations, summarising ways forward for the NHS in keeping best practice and improving areas which are more problematic.
