Introduction

This paper is intended to enable further engagement on development of approaches to safe and effective staffing. It sets out refreshed proposals on proposed legislation on safe and effective staffing (referred to in this document as the ‘Safe Staffing’ Bill, though the final title of the Bill, when it is introduced to the Parliament is still to be finalised), building on the responses to an initial consultation (April 2017) and more recent engagement with the health and social care sector. The summary of the initial consultation responses was published 11 December 2017. This written engagement exercise invites views by 19 February 2018 on the Scottish Government’s refreshed proposals to create a cohesive legislative framework across health and social care regarding workforce planning, ensuring appropriate staffing and for the use of workload and workforce planning methodologies and tools where they exist.
