Funding for the education and professional development of staff working in the NHS and in social care is under pressure. Demand for health and social care services is increasing. Many NHS providers are in deficit. The majority of the funding provided to Health Education England is spent on the training and professional development of medical staff rather than nurses, midwives and key health professions such as radiographers, physiotherapists and podiatrists.
This manifesto sets out the steps that we believe the next government should take to avoid future staff shortages, improve health outcomes and move to the greater integration of health and social care as well as support the NHS and social care workforce of the future.
