The Secretary of State for Health, Matt Hancock, has launched an online portal 'Talk Health and Care', inviting healthcare professionals to share their opinions on change required in the NHS. The comments will feed into the development of the NHS long term plan and the Social Care Green Paper.
The Department of Health and Social Care is seeking insight from healthcare professionals on five key topics:
- Feeling empowered and staff achieving their full potential
- Working without fear of bullying, discrimination or violence
- Having access to the training, development and support that staff need
- Feeling included and valued
- Getting the basics right
