Workforce deployment software survey

Closed 6 Aug 2021

Opened 28 Jun 2021


This survey collects data from NHS trusts on their levels of attainment (LOA) for e-rostering and e-job planning software usage across different professional (clinical workforce) groups. 

The LOA Checklist for both e-rostering and e-job planning (found at the bottom of this page) will assist providers in determining their LOA and therefore should be completed prior to completing this survey. 

Providers are required to return both the e-rostering and e-job planning LOA checklist when submitting this survey.

Why your views matter

The purpose of the national survey is to provide a baseline assessment of: 

  1. software coverage and 
  2. software usage

to help prioritise financial and operational support and to commence the tracking of progress against this Long Term Plan commitment, People Plan and System Planning priority.
