UCL has launched the Global Business School for Health (GBSH) to train a new generation of students focused on healthcare management and leadership. As the world’s first business school dedicated to health and healthcare management, the UCL GBSH aims to elevate the global impact of healthcare delivery and transform healthcare access, experience and outcomes worldwide by empowering healthcare management leaders of the future through high-quality education.
The school will address issues seen in the global health sector, including labour shortages and gender inequality in leadership and other challenges brought to the forefront throughout the pandemic. This includes ageing populations, increases in non-communicable diseases, inefficiencies, gender inequalities in leadership, and rising costs.
Meanwhile, The Association of Professional Staffing Companies (APSCo) has outlined its top lobbying priorities to support Clinical and Healthcare recruiters as skills resources continue to impact the sector. The trade will use its lobbying powers to emphasise the value of recruitment firms to the healthcare sector and articulate the costs of a compliant, flexible supply chain. APSCo will also participate in consultations on healthcare reforms on behalf of the professional recruitment sector. This will include involvement in the consultation on the Government’s Health and Care Bill and large-scale structural re-organisation of the NHS, involving and integrating with social care.
