Research Programme on Healthcare Workforce Planning
The Research Programme on Healthcare Workforce Planning is a three-year programme agreed between the Health Service Executive and the ESRI, which commenced in 2023. The broad objective of the programme will be to project health and social care workforce demand for a wide range of services and staff categories. The initial focus of the programme will be to develop workforce projections for a range of non-acute services.
The Programme will build on a HSE-funded research project Projections of workforce requirements for public acute hospitals in Ireland, 2019–2035: A regional analysis based on the Hippocrates model which was completed in July 2022.
