This report reviews the state of the NHS workforce as the coalition government’s term reaches its halfway point. It finds that nursing is suffering from cuts while other professions are increasing in numbers. It argues that these figures reveal a looming crisis in nursing, as the demand for nursing care increases. It cites the formation of Health Education England as an opportunity to take a long-term approach to workforce planning and secure the future supply of nursing staff.
