NHS Streamlining Week 1-5 April 2019 

Streamlining week

NHS Employers will be hosting a week dedicated to streamlining in the NHS during 1–5 April 2019. The week will showcase a variety of initiatives and learning, with the aim of educating, sharing good practice and inspiring other organisations to review their recruitment and induction processes to increase efficiency and improve the experience of staff as they move around the NHS. We will also share some examples of streamlining principles being used to support system working.


We will be launching various resources throughout the week, along with key stakeholders such as ESR, NHS Improvement and NHS Jobs which will promote the benefits of streamlining and support your streamlining journey. 


We will be tweeting throughout the week and would like you to get involved and tell your streamlining journeys by using #NHSstreamlining.
