NHS working longer review

RCN submission 2013

Published: 12/02/2014
Publication code: 004513
Document forms the RCN's submission to the NHS working longer review. The challenge of an ageing workforce is not a new one, and is one that the RCN has raised, and given attention to repeatedly over recent years. However, the nature of the challenge has changed. Historically, organisations needed ways to tempt older and retired staff back into the workforce; now the challenge is to ensure that the increasing numbers of older staff in the health service are enabled to work safely, efficiently and productively.
