The Strategic Workforce Plan for Primary Care was developed by Health Education and Improvement Wales (HEIW) and the Strategic Programme for Primary Care (SPPC), in collaboration with a wide range of stakeholders.
The plan was endorsed by the National Primary Care Board in December 2023 and shared with health boards to inform planning for 2024-25.
The plan was approved by the National Primary Care Board on 15 February 2023 and it is proposed to launch in spring 2024.
A ‘short read’ version of the plan will be available soon.
The aim of the plan is to develop sustainable workforce models that support the ambition of A Healthier Wales and the Primary Care Model for Wales.
The actions are formed from the engagement, strategy mapping, workforce intelligence and national and international research.
The actions focus on the following areas:
To ensure the plan is delivered effectively, all organisations will need to embrace the plan and take it forward locally. This will help develop a sustainable primary care service which meets the needs of the population and provide equitable access and high-quality care.
The actions will be prioritised with immediate actions to be taken forward in 2024/25. The remaining actions will be delivered in a phased approach following this.
