Attracting and developing our workforce
It’s important that we attract people to the healthcare workforce to ensure that we have the right number of people, with the right skills, delivering healthcare at the right time, in the right place.
Our work also covers healthcare staff currently employed to ensure they continuously have the skills, competencies and behaviours to work in the NHS. We are currently working on a number of projects locally and nationally to ensure we attract and develop flexible, competent staff, who hold the NHS values at heart.
The regulators also have an important part to play in this, as do providers who are ultimately responsible for employing, maintaining and developing their staff and the quality of care they provide.
