Policy Forum for Wales

Conferences that are scheduled to take place before September will be conducted online.
The format will mirror physical conferences organised by the Forum with speakers presenting via webcam, accompanied by slides if they wish.
The conferences will be chaired and there will be opportunities for delegate questions and comments.
We will be contacting all participants in advance of each conference with full information and guidance on how to take part.
There will be some exceptions where conferences will be postponed, for instance those that would largely involve key stakeholders in the NHS or emergency services.
All participants affected by this will be informed as soon as possible.
If you’d like to speak to us over the phone about any booking-related queries, please call one of the following numbers: +44 (0)7951044809 / +044 (0)7503591880 / +44 (0)7538736244

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.

Price: £95 PLUS VAT

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.
