CPA response to NHS Workforce Plan
NHS Workforce Plan – 30 June 2023
Nadra Ahmed, chair of the Care Provider Alliance, has responded to the NHS Workforce Plan saying:
“The Care Provider Alliance welcomes the publication of the NHS workforce plan. Social care providers share the same staffing shortages, funding challenges and cost of living pressures as our NHS colleagues. We are committed to tackling those challenges together and welcome the framework the plan provides to enable us to work within it while we work towards an equally necessary plan for social care.”
The NHS Long Term Workforce Plan sets out plans to:
- double medical school training places to 15,000 by 2031, with more places in areas with the greatest shortages
- increase the number of GP training places by 50% to 6,000 by 2031
- almost double the number of adult nurse training places by 2031, with 24,000 more nurse and midwife training places a year by 2031.
