Back in December, HEE launched Facing the Facts, Shaping the Future, A health and care workforce strategy for England to 2027 – describing the nature and scale of the workforce challenges we face and setting out proposals for the management of workforce issues at both local and national level. This draft strategy was developed together with content from NHS England, NHS Improvement, Public Health England, the Care Quality Commission, National Institute for Clinical Excellence and Department of Health.


It’s now open for consultation until 23 March 2018 and it’s important that we hear views from across health and care to inform the final workforce strategy which will be published in July 2018.
