The National Health Service published the interim NHS People Plan on 3 June 2019. It sets out the long-term vision and immediate actions to meet the challenges of supply, reform, culture and leadership.

Publication of the final NHS People Plan has been deferred to later this year, allowing the NHS to devote maximum operational effort to COVID-19 readiness and response. The Government is working with the NHS to identify a package of support for NHS staff to help them during the COVID-19 response. This is likely to involve accelerating some of the elements of the NHS People Plan related to staff health and wellbeing.
