Book your free place on one of the NHS Employers and Capsticks workshops to help you understand more about the evolving strategic challenges facing the medical workforce, the medical contract reform agenda, and the changing legal context affecting employers and their medical workforce. 

These sessions have been developed to support our engagement activities with employers, allowing us to better understand your needs and explore ways in which we can support you to meet your local objectives. They provide an opportunity for medical workforce leaders to have their voice heard and influence how we respond to the system leaders and national organisations on today’s challenging agenda.
