Workforce Planning in Health and Social Care
Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3 of the National Health and Social Care Workforce Plan were published over the course of 2017 and 2018. This event will examine the tools, guidance and strategies for improving workforce planning across health and social care.
Workforce planning within health and social care is complex and challenging
Scottish Government aims to improve workforce planning across health and social care, seeking to support organisations to identify, develop and put in place the workforce they need to deliver safe and sustainable services.
Organisations must consider processes of integration, the ongoing shift towards community-based care, an ageing population and workforce, rising demand for services for people with complex needs, resource constraints, skills gaps and recruitment challenges.
Join us on 25 June as we scrutinise the recommendations being laid out and the next steps towards implementation. Fundamentally, we will examine how organisations get the right people, into the right place, at the right time to deliver sustainable, safe and high quality health and social care.
