Health Education North West - Workforce Repository and Planning Tool

The challenge

GE Healthcare Partners led a blended team of NHS and industry staff to deliver a web-based Workforce Repository and Planning Tool (WRaPT) for Health Education North West (HENW) and Lancashire Care NHS Trust. Health and social care economies and individual organisations are redesigning services in the face of an unprecedented requirement for change. Health Education North West (HENW) had two clear objectives related to this.

  • First, they wanted to get a clear picture of the Health and Social Care workforce across the North West.
  • Secondly, they wanted a tool to help systems and organisations to plan their workforce in the face of the changing environment - no such tool existed
