The Wakefield District Health & Care Partnership serves a population of over 350,000 people living in Wakefield District. The partnership includes NHS organisations, Wakefield Council, Healthwatch Wakefield, housing, voluntary and community sector organisations.
In Wakefield District, we understand that our workforce is our greatest asset. Our People Plan takes a co-ordinated, collaborative approach to ensure we are safe, healthy, resilient, compassionate and flexible. It provides a programme of support and development that’s relevant to everyone working in health and social care across Wakefield.
Now, more than ever before, we need to rethink familiar approaches to how we shape and plan our workforce. This is about considering the needs of everyone, including our practitioners but also the people being supported, their carers, volunteers, and everyone in our neighbourhoods. We want a workforce that mirrors the communities we serve and where we are attractive as a local employer.
