We need your views for the workforce strategy for social care

We need your views for the workforce strategy for social care

- | Social Care Wales

Last summer we held engagement events to help us shape the next phase of the delivery of A Healthier Wales: Our Workforce Strategy for Health and Social Care. We listened to what you had to say and we’ve identified the main themes, reviewed workforce intelligence, research reports and policy commitments, and met with stakeholders to develop the next phase of actions for 2023 to 2026.

The National Workforce Implementation plan (NWIP) for the NHS has already been published, so this delivery plan focuses on social care and joint actions with our health partners.

We want to hear a range of opinions about this plan, from anyone who has an interest in the health and social care workforce. We’re particularly interested in hearing from people working in health and social care in Wales, as well as those who use care and support services, carers and volunteers.

Tell us what you think about the draft actions for 2023 to 2026, before we launch a finalised action plan in the autumn of 2023.
