To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, whether the forthcoming long-term plan for the NHS will include the matter of investment in nursing higher education.
Answer (Stephen Hammond)
The National Health Service runs on the dedication of its workforce and ensuring we have the right staff in the right place when they are needed is fundamental to this. Workforce will be at the heart of the NHS long-term plan, supporting our drive to ensure the NHS has, not only the nursing workforce it needs but other key groups too to deliver excellent, safe care for patients.
