9:15     Collaborative workforce planning in the NHS  (Peter Lacey)

This session will replay an interactive exercise undertaken by teams from Local Education & Training Boards who are part of a growing Workforce Modelling Collaborative. Locality teams made up of clinicians and senior workforce planners used simulation tools to explore training requirements in the light of future demand using tools that were sensitive to their local context and that gave opportunity for benchmarking and comparison. You will learn about the development process that led up to the event and then replay the exercises and consider the learning and benefits from this collaborative approach.
