The seminar will be an opportunity to assess the potential of the plan in addressing concerns around long term staffing arrangements - as well as priorities for recruitment, retention and future funding arrangements for workforce investment.
Attendees will consider what further steps might be necessary to support health and care staff if key targets within the NHS Long Term Plan are to be met - including goals to reduce health inequalities, improve population health and deliver digitally enabled care across the country.
