College responds to NHS Long Term Plan
08 Jan 2019
The College has responded to the publication of NHS England’s Long Term Plan, calling for a accompanying workforce plan.
Following the publication of NHS England’s Long Term Plan, Professor Jackie Taylor, the President of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow said:
“We welcome the publication of today’s document, and the strategy it sets out to improve patient care.
“What we need to accompany this ambition is a practical, long-term workforce plan. We must ensure that we have sufficient levels of qualified, well-supported staff within the NHS to deliver the positive difference we all want to see. With a recent joint report from the Nuffield Trust, The King’s Fund and Health Foundation predicting a shortfall of 250,000 staff by 2030, it’s clear that we need action now if we’re to build an NHS workforce which can deliver on the government’s worthy ambitions.”
