White paper ‘must be chief’s priority’

The Department of Health’s new workforce chief should prioritise staffing requirements of the health and social care white paper.

That was the message from Skills for Care’s head of workforce development Richard Banks, following the appointment of Clare Chapman as director-general of workforce for the NHS and social care.

Banks called for Chapman, who takes up the post in early 2007, to work with Skills for Care to define the white paper’s requirements.
