Policy Forum for Wales

The health and social care workforce in Wales: implementing the workforce strategy, planning for the future and protecting staff wellbeing

June 2019

This seminar focused on identifying priorities for the Workforce Strategy, taking into consideration the joint regional workforce planning, recruitment and retention; the expansion of generalist skills and modelling for future workforce needs.

Sessions examined the necessary steps to effectively implement the Workforce Strategy’s goals, including the proposed new leadership competency framework and development programmes, which will seek to promote strong governance.

Additionally, those in attendance considered plans for creating a flexible and learning workforce, taking into account the changing demographics and moves to more integrated care, as well as marking NHS Wales an exemplar employer in creating and supporting an engaged and healthy workforce.

Shortly after every Policy Forum for Wales seminar, a briefing document is produced. This is distributed to all delegates on the day as well as to our policymaker contacts in government, and to stakeholders more widely.

A seminar publication provides a timely record of proceedings, and acts as a guide to the latest thinking on current policy issues for those unable to be at the event.
