Who is responsible, and what is the timeframe, for taking forward the commitment for a cost of living review for nursing staff as set out in the London Health Vision?

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). HEE in London is now working as NHS England and NHS Improvement as part of Sir David Sloman’s London Regional Executive Team. Together NHS England and NHS Improvement and HEE are establishing the London People Board which will take forward plans for nursing in London building on the work of Capital Nurse. The London People Board should be up and running soon. I will ask Sir David Sloman to confirm the timescale at our next meeting.
