Consultation Document: Public Health England - Facing the Facts, Shaping the Future: A draft health and care workforce strategy for England to 2027

This document is about bringing the system together to discuss the future of its workforce and inform next years workforce strategy. To enable a conversation about what staff need; about what staff the health service needs, and how we shape the future we all want: a sustainable, free at the point of need universal healthcare system.

  • Consultation will run from 13 December 2017 to 17:00 23 March 2018. 

Extract from the introduction:

'In this document we outline why we need a workforce strategy, before detailing the 2017 workforce and how it has changed over the last five years. Workforce growth comes from three main areas: output from education and training, retaining our current workforce, and recruitment of trained workforce from elsewhere. We describe actions to grow capacity and capability to move towards self-sustainability in our workforce and build the NHS’s global reputation as a centre of excellence in healthcare education and training.

We then extend our lens to 2027, recognising that education and training and workforce reform takes time we look at how new technology, prevention and flexibility are required to meet the service’s workforce requirements a decade away.

We conclude by discussing the future for each of our workforce groups, using a focus on professions to analyse need and set out actions.

Please take the time to read this document and respond to the consultation to ensure that the final strategy is a comprehensive product of the whole system'.
