Annual General Meeting Report


Yesterday BIOS and BOSTU held their first ever fully virtual AGMs and they were a great success. 66 members were able to join us to hear about our achievements in the past year, which we believe is a record for a standalone AGM. While presenting from my dining room felt very strange, it was great to be able to speak to so many members at once, made possible by the resolution passed last year to allow for a virtual meeting. It was also nice in the challenging times we are in at the moment to be able to reflect on [...]

BIOS responds to the NHS People Plan


BIOS welcomes the publication of the NHS England’s People Plan as further recognition of the value of NHS staff and the need to provide them with greater support. However, while the plan sets out some positive measures, there remains a lack of real detail on key issues, such as addressing staff shortages and the role of allied health professionals. The Plan offers up some positive measures to support staff, particularly welcome given the increased pressure many have been throughout the response to COVID-19. This includes further support for staff health and wellbeing, a commitment to tackle systemic inequalities and make [...]
