Nursing Workforce in Scotland report
The report underlines just how urgently action is needed to repair the harms caused to the nursing workforce by the COVID-19 pandemic as well as years of chronic under-investment before the pandemic.
The report sets out 10 recommendations, which include calling for:
- A clear timetable for implementation of the Health and Care (Staffing) (Scotland) Act to be set out as a matter of urgency.
- The Scottish government to increase investment in health and care services to employ more nursing staff and achieve safe staffing levels.
- A commitment to continue to increase the number of nursing student places in line with workforce modelling rather than affordability.
