NHS report suggest recruitment issues delay mental health services

Mental health issues include depression, anxiety, stress among other nature of health difficulties. In recent years the number of health workers in the UK has declined. Mental health is a delicate issue that should be taken seriously. An NHS report suggest recruitment issues delay mental health services. There is, therefore, need for the UK to put up measures to counter such a finding.

There have been calls by the premiere of UK Theresa May, who later launched one of the biggest recruitment in the history of the NHS in order to fill the many vacancies. She promised to set aside a substation amount of about £20bn a year until 2023. This is aimed at increasing the recruitment and facilitating its operations. On this amount around £14 will be to used to absorb teenagers between the ages of 14-18.such a young population we the zeal and motivation learning health care at a tender age is key.

The biggest issue causing a decline in recruitment and recruiter training‌ ‌is also attributed to the fact that Britain would wish to exit the European Union. A decision that was arrived at in 2016. The report points out that a large number of the nurse was from the EU countries other than the UK itself. This is a serious crisis that requires a clear and formal decision or else the country is likely to suffer. A direct decline in the uptake of mental health workers directly puts pressure on the existing workers who are likely not to perform as required. Remembering that the number of health issues is also on the rise according to the NHS report. According to the finding of the report, the Department of Health and Social Care came up with a solution that there was a need to increase the number of job applications to around 22000.

In 2017 the number of nursing vacancies was around 34000, fascinating enough was that the many vacancies were in the department of mental health care. It was then reported that the biggest hurdle at that point was finding and retaining the staff to be specific the right level in reference to the profession and experience was now becoming the main problem for NHS. A thorough and well-calculated campaign was to be done to educate the general public to take up career opportunities in NHS in a bid to boost the number of midwives and nurses.

To ensure that this information reached the entire population there was the need to carry out communication through different media eg television, radio advertising and putting up posters. It was established that many people dint take nursing well and felt that it was outdated. It also concluded that the NHS careers were more of caring than being future leaders and innovative people. Lastly, it was clear that the nursing career was only taken seriously by the female gender. Only a few percentages would prefer there sons becoming nurses.

There is a great need to educate the general public on the need for professionals in the NHS. Despite being a lucrative affair its is not only about the caring they give but also the type of work they do that is really important. Most of the NHS works are also innovative and highly skilled-care to passionately handle the cases they are in. Therefore portraying the NHS workers as talented and dedicated leaders.
