Workforce planning seeks to ensure that the NHS has the right number of people with the right skills in the right place at right time to ensure on-going sustainability of a high quality, safe and patient centred care. Each health board is required by the Scottish Government to develop and publish a workforce plan on annual basis which has the support of the local partnership forum and is publically available. The 2015/16 workforce plan sets out the key strategic drivers for workforce and service change and provides a detailed assessment both workforce supply and demand, highlighting areas of challenge and the strategies and actions that are being taken forward by the Board to ensure workforce and service sustainability, in the medium and long term. The NHS Lothian Board also receives on-going briefings on areas with the workforce experiencing pressures which are available as part of the Board meeting papers.
