Service Needs Analysis

Service Needs Analysis

The Service Needs Analysis Tool has drawn on, and collated information from a variety of existing sources.  It can be used by Health Boards to strategically plan future workforce solutions or, at a more local level, to plan staffing for a single unit or specific field of clinical practice.  The Service Needs Analysis Tool is complementary to existing workforce planning tools and can be used alone or in conjunction with these tools.
