South East primary and community care workforce strategy

What kind of workforce will best meet patients’ evolving primary and community care needs across our region in the future? Health Education Kent, Surrey and Sussex (HEKSS) have commissioned CHSS to work with nominated South East Clinical Commissioning Groups to develop a strategic workforce plan, based on patient needs and preferences.

The CHSS project team, led by Patricia Wilson and Stephen Peckham, will work with South Kent Coast, Thanet and other CCGs. The project will examine likely models for a future workforce to address a range of issues, including the impact of population profiles on service demand, technology, cost implications and opportunities to increase access to care.

Start date: 01/04/2015 End date: 31/03/2016

Funder: Health Education Kent Surrey Sussex
