The Department of Health has set out the remit of the review of arrangements for NHS workforce planning announced by the government in the wake of the House of Commons health select committee's report on Future NHS Staffing Requirements. The review will be led by Judy Hargardon, chief executive of Barnet health authority, and Martin Staniforth, NHS Executive deputy director of human resources. It will 'consider the roles and responsibilities for workforce planning' at 'all levels of the NHS' and report to ministers by the end of the year. A consultation document will then be issued so an action plan can be drawn up by 'summer 2000'.
