- support - responding to your needs, we have developed a range of tools and resources to help you to be the best employers you can be

Engaging in the discussion
We are running a series of free events looking at workforce supply in the NHS. They aim to provide employers with space to discuss their supply challenges, share good practice and develop creative solutions together. Find out more on our workforce supply events web page.
