When we reference the workforce we are assuming its broadest definition, which includes unpaid carers, volunteers and the third sector.
This Place based People Plan for the Bradford District and Craven reflects the workforce challenges, opportunities, aspirations and plans (emerging and in place) for our system wide health and care workforce.
It demonstrates our ongoing commitment to work in partnership and is therefore inclusive of our health (primary and secondary care), social care, private/independent care providers and voluntary sector services. We recognise the role the education sector, in the form of schools, colleges and Higher Education Institutions, have in ensuring our future workforce pipeline and in training and developing our existing workforce.
We also appreciate the valuable experience and huge contribution unpaid carers make to caring for people in our communities. We consider all our partners contributions to be essential in us Acting as One to deliver our collective ambition of ensuring our local populations are ‘Happy Healthy at Home’.
The Integrated People Plan is overseen by the Health and Social Care Economic Partnership.
