First NHS Long Term Workforce Plan
30 Jun 2023
The full plan is due to be published later today and we will analyse what this will mean for surgeons and the whole surgical team. However, it is worth marking the historic moment that it is.
Responding to news of the NHS Long Term Workforce Plan, released today :
“The publication of the NHS Long Term Workforce Plan is a historic moment in shaping the future of healthcare in England. It is my hope that it will guide us in building a flexible and adaptable NHS workforce, equipped to meet the evolving needs of our patients. I am particularly pleased to see proposals to expand medical school and training places across all areas. It signals a renewed commitment from the Government to investing in healthcare professionals. Embedding a culture that truly values staff and their wellbeing, making them want to stay working in the NHS, will also be vital. If we can get this right, I am in no doubt the plan will pave the way for a brighter and more resilient health service.”
