About workforce

Our team plays a major role in workforce planning in the UK.

We want to make sure there's a workforce of well-trained psychiatrists delivering  safe, sustainable and flexible services for patients.

We work with Health Education England (HEE), NHS England, the devolved nations and other organisations to support improvements to the planning of education and workforce programmes.

Some of our successes include working with HEE on their mental health workforce plan (pdf) supporting the Five Year Forward View for NHS England.

The College is also campaigning to make sure we have the mental health workforce we need to meet current and future needs.

For further information, see our campaigning for better mental health policy section.
