Health Education England launches plan to strengthen NHS workforce

Health Education England launches plan to strengthen NHS workforce

Health Education England (HEE) has released a draft of its 10-year workforce strategy which is looking to create a long-term staffing plan for the first time in almost 25 years.

Key findings are that the NHS needs radical action to improve working conditions, boost training and retention and become a 'model employer' for staff.

The strategy examines the challenges faced by the health and care system, charting the growth in the NHS workforce over the last five years while setting out the critical workforce challenges that will be faced over the next decade.

Professor Ian Cumming, HEE's Chief Executive, urged people to get involved with the consultation process. He said, "Continuing with a business as usual approach to workforce planning is no longer sustainable.

There needs to be a major shift in the ways we plan in order to make sure we can meet the health needs of the country's diverse and growing population in the future. This much anticipated report underlines just how big the workforce challenge is and will spark debate, rightly so."

Following the consultation, a final report will be produced next July.
