Workforce is a high priority for the new Health Secretary

Published: 25 July, 2018

Workforce is one of the three priorities for Matt Hancock,  the new Secretary of State for Health and Social Care. Speaking to staff at a hospital in his constituency of West Suffolk within days of taking up the post he said:

“So what does that mean in practice?

First it means receiving the best training and support – the right number of people with the right skills so you are able to provide the safest, highest quality care to patients.

I want to ensure training is organised and funded so that everyone can reach their full potential.

GPs need more assistance to tackle with their substantial workloads.

There is currently a review of GP partnerships ongoing but I also want to see more training to those pharmacists based in GP surgeries and more staff to support them.”
