What impact can data apprenticeships have on healthcare?

How about extracting data from 200+ hospitals and identifying and solving challenges around bed capacity? Or achieving a 77% reduction in dropped operations by collecting and analysing theatre utilisation data?

These are true examples of impact delivered by two apprentices working in the NHS and learning on the Data Citizen and Data Analyst programmes, respectively.

Apprenticeships, as we know them today, are long-term training commitments for new and existing employees. They offer a variety of levy-funded training programmes that enable employers to foster a workforce consisting of highly skilled and engaged talent.

Within the NHS, digital skills are becoming increasingly important to an employees 'core competencies'. And with estimated cuts in NHS funding of £4 - £9.4 billion this year alone (NHS Confederation), healthcare providers can't afford not to take full advantage of the publicly funded data apprenticeships available.
