Bringing the clinical voice to the conversation

Produced by:

24 royal colleges and allied health professional (RCAHP) bodies in Wales have established a multidisciplinary external advisory group on workforce planning, service transformation and other shared priorities.

Royal colleges, faculties and societies are keen to work in partnership with Health Education and Improvement Wales (HEIW) to improve how we educate, attract and retain health and care professionals in Wales, while redesigning the future workforce.

We see HEIW as the national strategic workforce body for the health service in Wales, and we see ourselves as national bodies that represent the clinical voice of thousands of health and care professionals in Wales and across the UK.

We aim to engage with and offer support to HEIW and the Welsh government and develop stronger ongoing relationships with strategic and operational leads in national organisations.

We believe that urgent action is required to help the system meet rising patient need and changes in working patterns, eg more people working flexibly and less than full-time.
