Workforce Planning

Workforce Planning is best described as:

“Getting the right people with the right skills and competences in the right place at the right time to deliver services that provide the best possible patient care, within a budget that you can afford”.

In practice this involves the following

  • Designing your future workforce – Understanding what the workforce needs to look like to meet service need and influencing this process by ensuring that workforce considerations are part of the service and financial planning process.
  • Developing your future workforce – Through recruitment, retention, education commissioning and staff development.
  •  Delivering your future workforce – By understanding the management actions that will be necessary to ensure your workforce plans is delivered and that all your staff, service partners and stakeholders are engaged in the process.
