The current “workforce crisis” in the NHS is not a new phenomenon and we are seeing this become a growing challenge across the professions. In a recent report, for example, a number of think tanks predicted that there will be a shortfall of 108 000 full time equivalent registered nurses in 10 years if current trends continue.

The aim of this study was to examine if the so called glass escalator in which men are advantaged in female professionals still exists. Design and method Descriptive statistics of the routinely collected national workforce da...

This review aims to examine current approaches to the issue across many disciplines. Design The approach taken is iterative and in the form of a hermeneutic review. 769 pieces of evidence were reviewed from across disciplines such as nursing, medicine, engineeri...

This section of the Reformer Thoughts report addresses the crucial role of community health workers, not least district nurses, in keeping people out of hospital. In a time of rising demand in healthcare it’s unsurprising that the perennial issue of winter pressures comes onto the radar. The recent publication of the NHS Long Term Plan tried to tackle many different subjects but included relatively little on demand and no concerted effort to understand it. If we want to salve the issue of winter...

© 2018 Elsevier Ltd Purpose: Health services across the world utilise advanced practice in cancer care. In the UK, lung cancer nurse specialists (LCNS) are recognised as key components of quality care in national guidelines, yet access to LCNS contact is unequal and some responsibilities are reportedly left undone. We assess whether any variation in working practices of LCNS is attributable to factors of the lung cancer service at the hospital trust. Method: Nationwide workload analysis of LCNS ...

Materials and methods: English National Lung Cancer Audit data and inpatient Hospital Episode Statistics for 109,079 people with lung cancer surviving 30 days from diagnosis were linked along with LCNS workforce census data ...

Background and Aims Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are the most common forms of inflammatory bowel disease affecting 1 in 250 of the population in the UK. It is accepted that access to a specialist nurse service improves patient experience and outcome. National Standards for inflammatory bowel disease care (2013) defined the number of nurse specialists required at 1.5 full time equivalent per 250,000 population. The aim of this study was to determine if these standards were being met and...

People with lung cancer experience physical and emotional hardships, often heightened by low survival rates and side effects of treatments. People may be admitted for unplanned hospital care due to reasons related to their lung cancer diagnosis, presenting an economic burden on healthcare resources. For individuals, unplanned admissions present a burden on their life that may be avoided through alternative care management initiatives. Lung cancer nurse specialists (LCNS) are advanced practitione...
