On the day briefing: Mental health workforce plan
Health Education England (HEE) has published Stepping forward to 2020/21: the mental health workforce plan for England.
The workforce plan is intended to support the delivery of the Five year forward view for mental health and will draw on its funding. The plan is mainly concerned with the formal, specialist mental health workforce employed by mental health trusts and other NHS-funded providers.
This briefing summarises the plan, covering:
- where we are now
- where we need to be
- what we need to do to get there
- actions for trusts as employers
- actions for sustainability and transformation partnerships
