Case Studies

The Workforce Challenge Hub brings together a range of stories and learning from health and social care colleagues.  Our collection of case studies are from teams across the care system, from primary health to acute care, mental health, social care; and range from small team changes to whole system programmes of change.

These are stories of lived experience of workforce transformation, your colleagues achievements; how they did it, and describe the impact the changes have had on team members working lives; and ultimately, patient care. You can find more case studies in the HEE Roles Explorer at Future NHS 

Do you have a transformation story about your workforce transformation that you’d like to share with other colleagues?  Have you changed how some of your team work?  Send us details to and we’ll share your story with others.
