Draft actions for consultation - Word document format


Background information

Over the last few months, we have undertaken significant engagement with stakeholders from across primary care as well as extensive research. This has informed and shaped the proposed actions. We are also reviewing available workforce intelligence so that we have a clear view on the priorities that we need to address over the next five years. 

Now, we want to formally ‘test’ the draft actions with stakeholders to ensure that we have identified solutions that will have the greatest impact.

The actions we are consulting on apply to all contractor professions. However, for dental professionals there will be an opportunity to consult on some dental specific actions. This will feed into the wider strategic workforce plan.
