Published in July 2020 by NHS England and NHS Improvement, the NHS People Plan’s aim is to have more people, working differently, in a compassionate and inclusive culture within the NHS. The plan also includes Our People Promise, which outlines behaviours and actions that staff can expect from NHS leaders and colleagues, to improve the experience of working in the NHS for everyone.

To achieve its ambitions, the NHS People Plan sets out specific actions within six areas:

  • Responding to new challenges and opportunities
  • Belonging in the NHS
  • Growing for the future
  • Looking after our people
  • New ways of working and delivering care
  • Supporting our people now and for the long term

This section brings together the pages on our website that align with each of these six areas of action.

You can read more about the NHS People Plan, and the NHS People Promise, on NHS England and NHS Improvement’s website.
