The NHS Long Term Workforce Plan commits to working together to make the ambitions of the NHS People Promise a reality for everyone. This is fundamental to retaining our NHS people and improving patient care.

The session will spotlight organisations that are committed to improving the experience of work for their staff through the People Promise Exemplar Programme. The heart of the session will be discussions on delivering the NHS People Promise, the challenges and opportunities, and the important role that listening tools and workforce metrics play.
