As more nurses leave than enter the nursing register, new research by Bournemouth University is looking at ways in which the NHS can maintain nursing workforce numbers.
Nurses comprise 50% of the healthcare workforce and care quality thus depends on maintaining workforce numbers. Researchers from Bournemouth University have been looking into ways in which the NHS can retain nursing staff in times of increased care demand, declining resources and uncertainties post-Brexit.
Led by Principal Investigator and Bournemouth University Associate Professor, Janet Scammell, the study looks at nursing provision across Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (RBCH) and how nursing levels can be improved or maintained through the collaborative development and use of an evidence-based nurse retention model, known as TRACS.
