Hospice workforce data

We support the benchmarking of patient safety in hospice care


The COVID-19 pandemic has had a huge impact on the way that we deliver services across the hospice sector. Our workforce has been our greatest asset. Staff have shown great flexibility, innovation and courage throughout.  We recognise the importance to be able to analyse and report on the current size and nature of the hospice workforce to help support future planning and sustainability.

In the first of a series of Workforce datasets, we are inviting hospices to complete a high-level snapshot survey covering the clinical workforce and clinical volunteers in place on 15 February 2021. The results of the survey will provide a high-level overview of the current clinical workforce and is intended to give us a baseline to support planning and development of services.

Collection of this snapshot will take place during March with final submissions due on 16 April 2021.
