According to a new government people plan called “The interim NHS people plan” launched in a bid to address the NHS’ workforce, states that it is important to provide better culture and retention but experts warn managers need to ‘start with their own behaviour’ to enact change – The NHS needs to rapidly become a better place to work, as well as address growing staff shortages

The interim NHS people plan which has been developed by the British Medical Association (BMA), the Royal College of Nursing (RCN), NHS managers and staff unions argues that more needs to be done to improve keeping existing healthcare staff and transform ways of working on top of recruiting new workers.

The plan, focuses on three key areas – recruiting more staff; making the NHS a better place to work; and equipping it to meet the future challenges
