HPMA response to the Interim NHS People Plan

 `We are pleased to see the publication of the Interim NHS People Plan. The NHS HR community have been highlighting the NHS workforce crisis for some time and feel they have been running on the spot. It is particularly pleasing to see a plan that not only emphasises investments in nursing and new roles but recognises the significant cultural and leadership challenges we face. We now need to see the long awaited investment in our NHS HR and OD professionals we have been calling for to ensure we can accelerate delivery of the ambitions in the plan.
