Officials are currently analysing the responses received to the call for evidence to develop the forthcoming 10 Year Cancer Plan. It will set out plans to ensure that the appropriate workforce is in place to support all cancer patients.

In July 2021, the Department commissioned Health Education England to review long term strategic trends for the health and regulated social care workforce and update the existing long term strategic framework. This is expected to be completed in summer 2022. In addition, the Department has commissioned NHS England to develop a Long Term Workforce Plan. Further information on the plan and its conclusions will be available in due course.
