Staff turnover represents a major problem for healthcare services (HS) in terms of cost and quality of care given, thus making the issue of improving retention a priority for the sector. This study reviews the literature on factors affecting turnover and retention of hospital consultants and midwives. Prevailing concepts regarding the reasons for voluntary turnover and factors affecting retention have been used to guide the conduct of the review, and the implications for practitioners and researchers have been identified.
