NHS Workforce Data User Needs Assessment
As published in Scottish Government’s National Workforce Strategy for Health and Social Care in March 2022, a commitment was made to “Analyse and do a needs assessment of available workforce data and sources building recommendations for workforce data collection design, quantity and quality.”

Below is the template we are asking stakeholders to consider so we can prioritise data improvement within the Data Gaps and Linkages project.
