A Health and Care Workforce Fit for the Future

Last year, the Scottish Government published its national workforce strategy for health and social care, outlining how it would achieve recovery, growth and transformation. Despite this, over the past year we have seen unions balloting members on strike action, high vacancy rates and a cost-of-living crisis placing an additional financial burden on many.

With this in mind, our Health Hub will focus on steps that need to be taken to create a workforce fit for the future. Join RCN Scotland, RPS Scotland and CSP Scotland as we explore how we can expand the workforce, support students through training, and best utilise our skills mix.
