The new NHS Interim People Plan (IPP) has revealed that the NHS needs to be ‘the best place to work’ in order to gain more staff and recruit a further 40,000 nurses.

NHS England and NHS Improvement have developed the IPP over the last few months and have also proposed numerous measures to help tackle the current “once in a generation” NHS workforce crisis. Bosses in the NHS say they are looking to significantly improve their retention rates by putting a greater emphasis on career development, with international recruitment also being targeted. This will be done by appointing lead agencies to co-ordinate the recruitment search.
