The Centre for Workforce Intelligence (CfWI), Futures Diamond and the Manchester Institute of Innovation Research (MIoIR) have successfully implemented another phase of the continuously evolving CfWI Horizon Scanning Hub. The Hub is a unique source of future-thinking information about the healthcare, social care and public health workforce in the United Kingdom. It aims to inform better long-term decisions to improve workforce planning and  people’s life. The new version of the Hub allows you to access the latest research from the CfWI Horizon Scanning team, contribute to ongoing projects, explore our comprehensive ideas bank, our big picture challenges, our publications, and much more…

You can visit the video tour of the CfWI Horizon Scanning Hub here.

The Hub was jointly developed by the CfWIThe University of Manchester and Futures Diamond. The following film explains the main demographic and financial challenges facing health and social care, before outlining why the CfWI has adopted horizon scanning as a means of helping organisations address these challenges. It explains:

  • the CfWI horizon scanning methodology
  • the projects where the CfWI has used horizon scanning
  • the organisations with whom the CfWI works.

The video concludes by illustrating what people think of the CfWI approach, before explaining the future work of the CfWI, including the CfWI’s new online information hub, which is designed to assist organisations in their workforce planning.
