Rethinking Doctor Rostering: Why greater visibility and flexibility will be transformative for healthcare
With Covid-19 having stretched resources to the limit, healthcare providers face a huge battle as they attempt to reduce patient backlogs.
The pressure to meet patient needs is made worse by the fact that workforces have been worn down by the hardships of the pandemic – and the NHS is being hindered by a shortfall of doctors nationally.
