To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide an update on the progress being made with the integrated health and social care workforce plan.
Answered by: Jeane Freeman 16 November 2018
We are making good progress with the integrated workforce plan. A draft has already been circulated to stakeholders and we continue to work closely and constructively with them as we develop the plan towards finalisation.
It is important to ensure that the plan’s contents meet with stakeholders’ expectations. To ensure they have sufficient opportunity to comment on and contribute to the plan we are extending our planned engagement period. Consequently, the publication date for the plan is therefore likely to move from December to January 2019.
