Staffing matters; funding counts – The Health Foundation reports on the greatest threats to the delivery of the NHS’ Five year forward view – funding constraints and workforce shortages.

Fair training pathways: understanding differential attainment in medicine – UCL Medical School’s Dr Katherine Woolf blogs about her research into why black and minority ethnic medics and international medical graduates face more barriers to success.

NHS 111’s National Advisor calls for more collaboration – in this short video blog, NHS England’s National Medical Advisor to NHS 111 urges 111 providers, out of hours services and out of hospital provision to work better together.
