No specific assessment has been made.

The Department has commissioned Health Education England to review long term strategic trends for the health and regulated social care workforce. This will ensure we have the appropriate skills and behaviours to deliver high standards of care. In addition, we have commissioned NHS England to develop a long term plan for workforce, which will include assessments of supply and demand. The outcomes will be available in due course.
