The Secretary of State for Health and Social Care came to the House on Monday 3 July 2023 to present the NHS Long-term Workforce Plan. This was announced by NHS England on Thursday 29 June and in a written statement on Friday 30 June before the Secretary of State announced it to the House. I asked the Secretary of State a question: I associate myself with the remarks the Secretary of State made about Bob Kerslake. He was a true public servant, and his death is our loss. What is the point of a workforce plan if the Secretary of State is not actually talking to the workforce? When will he talk to the junior doctors and the consultants? Can I also ask whether the work on the workforce plan will start forthwith or sometime in the future?
