The publication of High Quality Care for All in June 2008 followed an intensive consultation with all the key stakeholders including patients, the public and staff. The report was warmly received by all and set out how the NHS work force will be developed, specifying how the Department will work with regulatory bodies, professional groups and commissioners to ensure that health practitioners are suitable qualified and trained to deliver high quality healthcare. The report has already been placed in the Library.
