Developing the workforce

We worked with Health Education and Improvement Wales (HEIW) to develop a first-ever workforce strategy across health and social care that can meet the future needs of people in Wales. This has now been launched.

Development of the strategy followed extensive consultation to gather a broad range of opinions and we would like to thank everyone for their support and contributions.

Between October 2020 and March 2021, in partnership with Health Educational and Improvement Wales, we developed and delivered on a Winter Plan which was aligned to the workforce strategy and a summary of the achievements is available below.
