    Holyrood Insight’s Health and Social Care Workforce Scotland Conference will be held in central Edinburgh on 24 October 2023 amidst a pivotal period of recovery and transformation for the health and social care system across Scotland. What remains clear is that developing a strong workforce is key to securing long-term stability in the sector.

    A recent report by Audit Scotland highlighted that workforce capacity is the biggest risk to the recovery of NHS services in Scotland. Research shows that both Brexit and Covid-19 have impacted the adult social care workforce, and in 2020 there was a 43% vacancy rate across the social care sector.

    Against this backdrop, this conference will assess the national priorities for building sustainability in the health and social care workforce, with a renewed commitment from the Scottish Government to deliver improvements in workforce planning, attraction, training, employment and wellbeing by 2026.

    Progress will be reviewed against the five key pillars in the National Workforce Strategy for Health and Social Care:

    • workforce planning
    • attracting talent
    • training and progression
    • employment and retention
    • nurturing and supporting wellbeing

    Early booking is recommended.

    Key information
    Full details

    Fife Voluntary Action recognises that this session will be of particular interest to parts of Fife's third sector- we've therefore opted to include it here. Please note, though, that the cost to attend is a little more than we'd normally expect for a session promoted on our channels- be fully sure of the costs before you make plans to attend.
