2020 Workforce Vision

Everyone Matters: 2020 Workforce Vision, published in June 2013 [1] , recognises the key role of the workforce in delivering the 2020 vision for health and social care and in responding to the challenges involved in delivering high quality, safe, effective and person-centred care.

We are making good progress towards our 2020 vision while also looking further forward, beyond 2020. The national conversation [2] on creating a healthier Scotland, which took place in 2015 and early 2016, reached over 9,000 people through 240 events and engagement across the length and breadth of the country and over 360,000 website and social media inputs.

The National Clinical Strategy [3] , including work on Realistic Medicine [4] , improving population health, our commitment to review board governance, and the continued roll out of health and social care integration, are our key drivers to deliver transformational change across health and social care between now and 2030. Underpinning this will be the introduction of a national workforce plan and regional workforce plans, alongside a draft Bill on Safe Staffing which will be introduced into Parliament in Autumn 2017.

Our workforce is at the heart of these initiatives, and the 2020 workforce vision, and the actions we are taking to deliver this, are integral to ensuring that our workforce continues to be appropriately trained, engaged, motivated, healthy and resilient to deliver our world-class health service now and in the future.
