With NHS pay frozen, it’s becoming ever harder to recruit nurses and midwives in the capital. But at UCLH, managers have transformed the trust’s recruitment operation – and cut the vacancy rate by more than half. Matt Ross reports.
“We’d enjoyed quite good times,” recalls Julie Hogg, the trust’s deputy chief nurse. “Then we got a little bit behind the game: we’d been living on our brand, and recruitment hadn’t had the energy and focus that it needed. Other organisations began attracting people who we might have brought in.”

The doyen of NHS management, UCLH’s Sir Robert Naylor, talks to Alison Moore about his 45-year NHS career, the prospects for aspiring leaders, and how he still hopes to have a hand in the NHS’s future.
Few NHS leaders can offer as wide a range of perspectives on NHS management as Sir Robert Naylor. In over 30 years as a chief executive he has seen more than a dozen health secretaries come and go, the ebb and flow of good times and austerity, and both centralisation and decentralisation fall in and out of fashion.

Sustainability and Transformation Plans may save the NHS or drag it further into the mire. Yet staff and patients have been shut out of the conversation so far. Craig Ryan takes a first look at what STPs might mean for managers working for the NHS.
The 5YFV’s broad vision for the NHS was breezily optimistic, but STPs are – or will be – all about the grinding detail of realising it. In these 44 hastily cobbled-together “foot-prints” the stark reality of what £22bn in efficiency savings really means for the NHS will play itself out.

Without more honesty, stability and time, we risk throwing away a once-in-a-generation opportunity to transform health and care services, says MiP chief executive Jon Restell.
MiP was an enthusiastic supporter of the Five Year Forward View. Now we see the Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STPs) as a once-in-a-generation opportunity to change our care system for the better. Our views are shared by many managers.

MiP Conference 2016: With STPs set to bring sweeping changes to posts and job descriptions across the NHS, delegates at a conference workshop discussed how to protect the integrity of the job evaluation system.
“People are not getting training, employers are using outside consultants with no experience of the NHS or Agenda for Change, and they’re looking for shortcuts, not evaluating all the factors and not doing consistency checking.”

Managers in Partnership (MiP) today welcomed the speech by Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt to the annual conference of NHS Providers.
"The ten-fold increase in the number of non-clinical management trainees by 2020 is bold. Good for Hunt. It is a vote of confidence in general management, HR, finance and other disciplines in the NHS. As ever, the devil is in the detail and we look to the Secretary of State to follow up his warm words with action."
