NHS Employers has welcomed Health Education England’s ‘Framework 15’ strategic framework for 2014-2029, which was released today (5 June).
Dean Royles, chief executive of the NHS Employers organisation, said.
"When the focus on delivering care today is a huge undertaking, it's great to have an opportunity to lift our eyes to the future. This is a patient-centred and comprehensive plan to develop a workforce that’s able to deliver care in a changing world.
“We particularly support its emphasis on the leading role of employers, not just health care professionals, in planning future roles. The commitment to supporting the development of the existing workforce is equally important. The NHS is about people and it must have staff with the right values and skills. Delivering the best possible care to patients in settings most convenient to patients is what we all aim to achieve."
