From Cat McMeeken, Deputy Director, Leadership, Wellbeing and Culture Division, Directorate of Health Workforce, Scottish Government
Today the Scottish Government has published its NHS Recovery Plan, committing more than £1 billion to the recovery and renewal of Scotland’s health service as we emerge from coronavirus.
Throughout, the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Social Care identifies that support for staff wellbeing is an essential and vital component. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the time and effort you have dedicated to working with us to co-design the proposals in the plan and ensure that they will deliver the maximum impact across our health and social care organisations.
Publishing the recovery plan today is a key milestone in achieving our ambitions for the wellbeing of the workforce, but I also know that there is further work to do in this space to ensure ongoing sustainability of these proposals. I look forward to continuing to work closely with you in the future.
