A final workforce implementation plan for England will be published later in the year, taking into account the outcomes of the Spending Review.

We recognise the importance of workforce training to underpin effective long-term National Health Service planning in England. We have already made commitments in this Spending Review into the next Spending Review period – for example on medical training places. At the forthcoming Spending Review, we will consider proposals from the NHS for a multi-year funding plan for clinical training places, based on the workforce requirements of the NHS plan.

Funding of education and training in Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland is a matter for each of the devolved administrations in each nation.
