Publication of the National Health and Social Care Workforce Plan - Part 1 – a framework for improving workforce planning across NHS Scotland

Executive Summary

Part 1 of the National Health and Social Care Workforce Plan, published by the Scottish Government on 28 June, strengthens and harmonises NHS Scotland workforce planning practice nationally, regionally and locally. Measures set out in Part 1 - including the establishment of a National Workforce Planning Group, and increases in the number of training places for medicine, nursing and midwifery – focus on ensuring NHS Scotland has the workforce it will need to address future demand for safe, high quality services for Scotland’s people. Parts 2 and 3 of the Plan, to be published later in 2017, will examine how to improve integrated workforce planning in social care and primary care settings. These important steps will enable different health and social care systems to move together towards publication of a second full Health and Social Care Workforce Plan in 2018 and beyond.
