Planning, Supply and Retention solutions to address workforce shortages
The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons and Glasgow has published its Scottish Medical Workforce Solutions Paper, providing recommendations to address the ongoing workforce challenges within NHS Scotland.
I want all healthcare staff to have time to listen to and talk to their patients. Time is everything and in a healthcare system that moves too fast with no slack in the system we are not caring adequately for our patients nor for ourselves.
