A severe shortage of health workers in the UK is threatening public health

Staff shortages in the National Health System (NHS) have reached the point where patient health is being threatened, according to a report by MPs in England.

Shortages of doctors have exceeded 12,000, and shortages of nurses and midwives have exceeded 50,000, at an unprecedented rate in NHS history.

According to the report, failure to take effective measures to fill the shortage of health workers could increase waiting times due to the pandemic.

On the other hand, the government says it is preparing long-term plans to find more employees.

Former health secretary Jeremy Hunt, chairman of the House of Commons health and welfare committee, which released the report, said it should be one of the top priorities for the new prime minister who takes office in September:

“There is a persistent shortage of NHS staff, which poses a significant risk to healthcare workers and patients,” he added.

And it is difficult to solve this problem because the government does not have a long-term plan to solve this problem,” he added.

1 million new jobs will be needed

At this rate, one million new health and social care jobs will be needed by the end of 2030, the commission said.

In addition to the UK’s aging population, growth in the healthcare sector and technological advances in this area will require more workers.

The committee also asked former health minister Sajid Javid, who quit this month.

Javid said the 6,000 yen family doctor in the government report was not on track to fulfill his promise.

Between March 2021 and March 2022 in particular, more than 500 midwives have left their jobs, risking disruption to maternity services.

The situation is worse in maintenance services

According to the report, 95 percent of sick and aged care centers face difficulties finding workers, while 75 percent struggle to maintain existing workers.

According to the report, this situation cannot be rectified until salaries improve.

He notes there are concerns that 17,000 care workers in the country are paid less than the legal limit of £9.50 an hour.

Patricia Marquez, director of the Royal College of Nursing, said it was unacceptable that some nurses working in the health system were finding it difficult to provide for their families, pay rent and pay for transport to get to work.
