Health & Social Care: Building a West Midlands Workforce Alliance



We were up in Birmingham on Friday at the University of Birmingham recording a couple of programmes for West Midlands ADASS.

Regional representatives of health and social care organisations have formed the West Midlands Workforce Alliance. The idea is to encourage and enable a more joined up approach to tackling the challenges of:

  • Recruiting and retaining the growing number of frontline staff needed to care for an ageing population
  • Supporting the sort of leadership that is needed within two interdependent sectors (health and social care) that share goals and need to work in partnership but are very differently organised, managed and governed
  • Getting the best from digital systems deployed for the management and delivery of care, and also for self-care by people being cared for

A roundtable meeting to discuss issues and plan future action was hosted by Birmingham University on 5th July 2019. There were three key topics under discussion:

  • Data
  • Digital
  • Leadership
