Health Education England has warned that the NHS workforce will need to increase by 190,000 by 2027 in order to meet demand following the release of the first NHS strategy concerning understaffing in 25 years reveals The Guardian. Staff levels are expected to drop due to pressurised jobs, limited pay and a severe shortage of nurses and paramedics. According to the report the NHS is short of 42,000 nurses, midwives and therapists.
