Long-Term Strategic Framework for Health and Social Care Workforce Planning

In July 2021, HEE was commissioned to work with our partners and review long term strategic trends for the health and social care workforce.

The Long-Term Strategic Framework for Health and Social Care Workforce Planning will review, renew and update HEE’s Framework 15 published in 2014, to help ensure we have the right numbers, skills, values and behaviours to deliver world leading clinical services and continued high standards of patient care.

For the first time ever, the framework will also include regulated professionals working in social care, like nurses and occupational therapists

The work will look at the key drivers of workforce demand and supply over the longer term and will set out how they may impact upon the required shape of the future workforce, to help identify the main strategic choices.

HEE is leading this programme of work in close collaboration with NHS England and NHS Improvement, Department of Health and Social Care, Skills for Care and key stakeholders across the health and social care sectors.

Design and development

The first stage builds on the engagement established as part of the NHS People Plan and develop an ongoing conversation with partners and stakeholders about long term workforce planning for health and care.

HEE’s call for evidence has now closed and we are grateful for the high volume of submissions received from stakeholders across the health and social care system. Though the call for evidence is closed, if you have information and evidence you believe helpful to the development of the Long-Term Strategic Framework for Health and Social Care Workforce Planning, please send to strategicframework@hee.nhs.uk

A series of virtual engagement events will be held during 2021-2022

If you have any other questions please email strategicframework@hee.nhs.uk.
