Primary Care Workforce Sustainability

We have a significant programme of work to support Primary Care sustainability. This programme of work is governed by the Regional Board for Primary Care Workforce Sustainability, established in 2016, and well attended by all regional stakeholders key to supporting a sustainable Primary Care system.

The Board was set up to facilitate a collective accountability around the emerging issues of demand outstripping capacity due to a nationally recognised growing workforce crisis. A clear work programme comprising nine priority delivery objectives has been agreed by all partners and is supporting partnership working and preventing duplication. Terms of reference including current list of members can be found here.

An example of three of the priority areas we are delivering upon are listed below:
