Danny Mortimer, Chief Executive, NHS Employers, said:

“We welcome the Home Affairs Select Committee report and the recognition of the view of NHS organisations that the ongoing shortage of nurses is not a short term issue. The health and social care sector is experiencing unprecedented demand on services and this has a direct impact on the need for skilled clinical staff to be employed to deliver care to patients. Nursing needs to be on the shortage occupation list on a more permanent basis and be more responsive to changing needs in demand.”
