The 10-year strategy for the health and care workforce

The 10-year strategy for the health and care workforce Though this may be a generalisation, until recently I am sure most people working in health and social care would have agreed that their biggest challenge was money, given the impact of sustained austerity on public services in general and on the NHS and social care in particular. However, by 2017, for many people workforce issues have caught up with – and sometimes overtaken – financial pressures as the key challenge facing both services. Most pressing are the staff shortages and high turnover now experienced in many services (nursing, general practice and much of social care to name but three) although long-term questions of self-sufficiency in workforce and skill-mix are also important, particularly as we look further into the future, post-Brexit.
