Health Education England have launched their draft health and care Workforce Strategy consultation. The Strategy will be published in July 2018 to coincide with the NHS’s 70th birthday. The draft strategy sets out the current workforce landscape in the NHS and social care, and the approach to shaping the face of the NHS and social care workforce for the next two decades.
The Association of Volunteer Managers will be submitting a response to the draft consultation, and would like to hear our members’ views to inform our response. Question five will be of particular interest to the volunteer management community, which asks:
Do you have any comments on how to better ensure opportunities to; and meets the needs and aspirations of; all communities in England?
Areas to explore may include:
- What more can be done to attract staff from non-traditional backgrounds, including where we train and how we train?
- How we better support carers, self carers and volunteers?
Members can submit their comments or questions to Ruth Leonard, AVM Chair via email firstname.lastname@example.org
The consultation ends in March 2018, so all comments or questions should be submitted by end of February 2018.
