  • Fife H&SCP's Workforce Strategy & Plan 2022-25

    Created: 04/12/2022, Updated: 06/12/2022

    Fife Health and Social Care Partnership's new Workforce Strategy has been designed with representatives from across the whole Partnership, to ensure it reflects the wide range of services provided, incorporating the aspirations of the refreshed Strategic Plan 2023-26.

    All partners have linked the workforce planning activity to the Scottish Government’s Five Pillars framework as recommended.

    There are actions that will be taken over the short, and medium term to support the tripartite ambition of recovery, growth and transformation of health and social care.

    The Partnership aims to:

    • Create the conditions through which the workforce, by extending health and social care services, can successfully recover from the pandemic.
    • Grow the health and social care workforce sustainably, in line with Fife’s population demographics and the demands on health and social care services. 
    • Transform the ways in which the workforce is trained, equipped, and organised to achieve long-term sustainability through increased effectiveness and improved population health outcomes.

    Throughout this strategy there will be actions associated with the Five Pillars of how the Partnership: Plan, Attract, Train, Employ and Nurture its Workforce.

    Key third sector notes:

    • There are 12,939 employees across Fife's Health and Social Care Sector in total - with 2,290 third sector employees. 480 staff were male and 1810 were female.
    • 34% of services are delivered by third sector services.

    Actions to Support the Third Sector

    The Partnership has committed again to continue to work with us at Fife Voluntary Action (FVA), as the third sector interface in Fife, to keep third sector staff and volunteers up to date with policy and planning developments, as well as creating opportunities to engage and influence. FVA will continue to bring together the voice of hundreds of third sector organisations and the tens of thousands of people we support through a variety of third sector forums, meetings and thematic events, in particular the Health and Social Care Forum, so that lived experience, relevant knowledge and expertise contribute fully to the work of the Partnership. The Partnership will continue to work with FVA to identify training and learning needs and help promote opportunities made available through the Partnership and work with FVA to engage with the wider third sector on all aspects of strategic planning, service design and service delivery.
