Delivering Safe Staffing in Health and Social Care

This event will examine how health boards, care providers and health and social care organisations can deliver safe staffing under the Health and Social Care (Staffing) (Scotland) Bill.

Getting the right people, in the right place, at the right time

Supporting organisations to improve workforce planning across health and social care is a top priority for the Scottish Government. With a bill currently passing through parliament, now represents the time to understand how your organisation can deliver safe staffing.

The ongoing shift to community-based care, the pressures of an ageing population and workforce as well as a rising demand for services has meant a more multi-disciplinary, multi-agency workforce but how can we ensure staffing is safe and sustainable?

Join Holyrood on 24 January as we equip you with the tools to have the right staff in the right place, with the right skills, to deliver high quality care.
