Developing the People Profession Cymru

We are committed to the development of the People (HR, OD and workforce practitioners) Profession in NHS Wales. Our NHS Wales people professionals are uniquely placed to drive positive change - their role and responsibility is to ensure we deliver on all aspects of the workforce agenda.

We recognise that to best support our people professionals, to create a modern, future-fit and inclusive People Profession, we must invest in professional and career development. We will do this through facilitating a range of opportunities to grow professional practice across Health in Wales. We will also ensure that professional practice is rooted in a sound knowledge of how we run our health organisations.
