Draft NHS Education for Scotland Strategy 2019-2024

15 January 2019 - NHS Education for Scotland consulted stakeholders on its Strategy for 2019-2024. 

Royal Blind's response expressed support for the vision and mission statements. We also reiterated our concerns over the need to recruit more staff into social care and improve retention in the sector given the ageing demographic of Scotland. We called for Scotland’s health and social care staff to be equipped with the skills to ensure tailored care can be provided to an increasing number of people with vision impairment, with this number set to more than double to almost 400,000 over the next two decades.
