A final workforce implementation plan 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. That is why 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.
