Responding to the Health Secretary’s speech at NHS Providers’ annual conference, Danny Mortimer, Chief Executive of NHS Employers, said:
“We welcome Mr Hunt's focus on leadership and our workforce. Employers across the NHS are committed to improving the working environment for their people and recognise the importance of providing rewarding careers supported by greater flexibility and effective team-working. The opportunities to develop apprenticeship routes into our largest profession, nursing, are particularly welcome.
“We look forward to continued support from national organisations to ensure the talents of our workforce are utilised to the maximum benefit of the patients they care for.
"NHS Employers will continue to support NHS organisations by sharing practical examples of good practice including those related to staff engagement, healthy workplaces, retention and diversity.”
