To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the report by the Royal College of Nursing Nursing Under Unsustainable Pressures: Staffing for Safe and Effective Care in the UK, published on 6 June, what steps they will take in response to that report's call for the Government to publish an "independently verifiable assessment of health and care workforce requirements to meet the needs of the population and address health inequalities.”

The Department commissioned Health Education England to review the long-term framework for the health and regulated social care workforce, to ensure that the right skills, values and behaviours are available to deliver high quality care. This review is nearing completion and further information will be available in due course. In addition, the Department has commissioned NHS England to develop a long term workforce plan and its conclusions will also be available in due course.
