College responds to NHS Long Term 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.”
