Response to Interim NHS People Plan published today

Posted on Monday 3rd June 2019

Skills for Care Interim CEO Andy Tilden: “We welcome the report’s very clear commitment to working with the 21,200 organisations who offer social care in England that employ 1.47 million people who will all want to play a key role in helping deliver the ambitious themes in this report.

“It is clear from our experience that building sustainable relationships between social care and health professionals and our fellow citizens is the key to delivering the sort of 21st century care we all want to be able to access when it is needed . Around 42000 nurses work in community and social care settings and we’re pleased to see this is recognised in this report. We look forward to working with NHS colleagues and other partners to deliver the support and development opportunities the workforce in social care and health need.”
