NHS Providers view: NHS England’s Long Term Workforce Plan

The NHS Long Term Workforce Plan (LTWP) was published by NHS England (NHSE) on 30 June 2023. NHS Providers published an on the day briefing, summarising the key components of the plan and our initial response.

While the plan’s publication was very welcome, we are concerned that elements of its implementation remain uncertain. Since publication, we have continued to analyse and gather feedback on the plan and its aspirations, and we are working with members and stakeholders as implementation progresses. This briefing sets out a more detailed summary of NHS Providers' view on the plan as it relates to trusts and foundation trusts, informed by our work in recent months.
