The Inspiring Leaders Network | June 2019 | Flexible and agile working is not marginal to organisational performance, it’s a cultural essential
The discussion paper from The Inspiring Leaders Network is based on the largest
national flexible working survey with healthcare staff ever undertaken, and includes discussions and insights from current leaders and those pursuing their careers.
Over 8000 people in clinical and nonclinical roles in England responded to the survey carried out by The Inspiring Leaders Network, working in partnership with Yorkshire and The Humber Leadership Academy.

As well as drawing on previous analyses to describe the extent of overall pay differences by staff group, pay band, age and ethnicity, it also identifies factors that drive those differences.
The UK medical register has hit a major milestone as it welcomed its 300,000th doctor. This comes just under two decades after we hit the 200,000 mark, which occurred just after the turn of the century.
Of the 300,040 doctors now on the register, 95,850 are on the specialist register and 70,154 are on the GP register. The rise of women in the workforce has played a major role in this growth, as the number of female doctors has more than doubled over the past two decades. Women now account for 46% of doctors on the medical register, which has become increasingly diverse in other ways too. About a third of all registrants identify as black and minority ethnic and four in ten obtained their medical degree in the EEA or further overseas.
