DHSC adds social care professionals to workforce planning strategy

Registered care professionals will be included in Health Education England’s strategic workforce plan for the first time.

HEE has been commissioned by the DHSC to include registered nurses in the Framework 15 document which, to date, has covered only health staff. The work will look at the key drivers of workforce demand and supply over the longer term.

HEE is expected to issue a ’Call for Evidence’ to identify the factors that may have the greatest impact on demand for the health and social care sector over the next fifteen years. This will include virtual engagement events, in collaboration with bodies including Skills for Care. Early publications from the care sector include a six-point shared vision for social care, including staff recognition, value and reward; investment in training, qualification and support and equality, diversity and inclusion in the workforce
