Securing the future workforce supply - Gastrointestinal endoscopy workforce review

Wednesday, 15 March 2017 15:24

The Centre for Workforce Intelligence (CfWI) was commissioned by the Department of Health (DH) and Health Education England (HEE) to contribute qualitative and quantitative research, data analysis, and modelling to support HEE and NHS England in providing sufficient medical and non-medical gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopists to deliver GI endoscopy services.

This is the first review of the endoscopy workforce undertaken by the CfWI, and this report represents the most complete picture to date of the GI endoscopy workforce in England in 2015. It contains combined analysis of three national endoscopy workforce datasets described below. The data yielded, coupled with wider work will support initial modelling, allowing a degree of extrapolation of demand and supply. However, it will not answer all questions about all subcomponents of this workforce.
