The King’s Fund, Nuffield Trust and Health Foundation have projected that without decisive action, nurse shortages will double to 70,000 and GP shortages in England will almost triple to 7,000 by 2023/24. Among other measures, the three organisations have called for cost-of-living grants for trainee nurses, investment in staff training, and the ethical recruitment of an additional 5,000 nurses a year from overseas.
The King's Fund is an independent charity working to improve health and care in England.
