NHS have Warned that Nurse Retention Plans Have to Be Clearer

The government have cast a lot of doubt in regards to the overall ability of the NHS England. They don’t believe that they are going to be able to deliver the flagship pledge, which involves having 50,000 more nurses. This comes from a leaked email. If you work in homecare or private nursing then you will know how dire the staffing situation is right now, but it would appear that nothing is going to change until action is taken.


The Department of Health and Social Care

The Department of Health and Social Care have a good set of concerns about how strong the NHS leaders are and the proposal regarding their retention. They are trying to step-up their involvement in the whole process in an attempt to remedy the situation. Johnson has to come forward with a clear and credible plan because if he doesn’t then the NHS might not be able to get the nurses that they need.

The fears have been laid out by Gavin Larner who is the NHS workforce chief. He has stated in a private email, that the NHS is suffering and more needs to be done to try and support the growing industry. The Conservatives had a decisive victory when the general election took place in December and part of the reason why they were able to come away with a win is because they promised to end the staffing crisis. Boris Johnson stated that he would deliver 50,000 more nurses by the year 2024. The party have faced a great degree of backlash from their opponents and even senior nursing figures as well. It surfaced that a large portion of the nurses were in the workforce and that the promise really focused on retaining them, rather than finding new ones.
