In response to my question 2020/1413, you said that you would offer Sir David Sloman the GLA’s expertise in demographics so as to support NHS workforce requirements. Has the NHS taken up this offer?

My recent meetings with Sir David Sloman have been focused on the immediate response to the Covid-19 pandemic. As London begins to plan out our response to recovery, there will be more opportunity to address longer term workforce issues. Sir David has informed me that the London People Board is being established and I am pleased to confirm that Jazz Bhogal, Assistant Director, Health Education and Youth will represent the GLA on the Board. Jazz will be ensuring that the GLA is supporting the NHS wherever possible. Jazz and Sir David will keep me informed of progress.
