The RCP has responded to NHS England's plan for increasing capacity and operational resilience in urgent and emergency care ahead of winter.
Sir Andrew Goddard, president of the Royal College of Physicians, said: “It is very welcome that NHS England is already preparing for winter by increasing capacity. But without any significant government intervention to retain and rapidly increase the workforce any plan will fall short. They all need people to deliver them, and it’s people we’re really lacking.”
Details of NHS England’s plan can be found on their website.
