Will the review on the impact of the cost of living for nurses committed to in the Our Vision for London NHS plan include workforce modelling to identify the required nurse staffing levels required in London to provide safe and effective patient care for the next ten years?
City Hall does not have any direct powers or responsibility for nurse recruitment and retention. Nursing numbers in London will be overseen by the London People Board. Work is underway at NHS England and NHS Improvement and Health Education England to establish this board. I will request an update at my next meeting with Sir David Sloman, Regional Director NHS England and NHS Improvement.
