Inquiry into the sustainability of the health and social care workforce
Concerns about the recruitment, retention and sustainability of the NHS workforce in Wales were well-publicised. The former Health and Social Care Committee undertook an inquiry into the GP workforce in Wales and also identified the wider health and social care workforce as an area of potential inquiry in its Fourth Assembly Legacy report.
The Committee carried out an initial, broad piece of evidence-gathering to help understand what the key workforce issues are across the health and care sector. This helped inform its approach to looking at workforce issues during the Fifth Assembly.
The Committee invited responses on this topic. The responses have been published.
