Ageing workforce+NHS = Big Problem

Deloitte has just published a report - Primary Care: Today and Tomorrow - Improving general practice by working differently.

If you don't have the time to read it and want to go straight to the headlines then have a look at the 62 sec video.

Those of us working in the Age Business have spent a lot of time trying to raise the issue of population ageing up the government and corporate agenda. It is one of those subjects that everybody thinks they understand but few (very few) really understand. I don't mean understand the details, but the magnitude of the change it creates. Maybe these facts about the impact on the NHS might raise its profile just a bit.

Congratulations to Deloitte - nice way of getting over the headline issues.

If you have a few more minutes to spend then you might want to have a look at this report by the Pensions Policy Institute about the rapid extension in the working lives of people that is necessary to fund their retirement. Dick Stroud
