What is the current status of the work to take forward the review on the impact of the cost of living for nurses committed to in the Our Vision for London NHS plan, when do you expect to publish the findings from the review, and will the conclusions come with new funding commitments to implement the review's recommendations?

City Hall does not have any direct powers or responsibility for nurse recruitment and retention. This review has been led by the Capital Nurse Team at Health Education England (HEE) and overseen by the London Workforce Board. Work is underway at NHS England and NHS Improvement and HEE to establish the London People Board. This new board will take forward the work started by the London Workforce Board, including the impact of cost of living, and will oversee London’s NHS workforce plans including oversight of funding flows.
