The Department has put in place a comprehensive work force planning mechanism that reviews, on an annual basis, supply and demand issues across all HPSS professional groups. The first report on the dental staff group has been completed and its findings did not indicate any general recruitment difficulties with this group. Nevertheless, the position will be kept under review through the Department's work force planning process.
