The plan, which has been put together jointly by the NHS trade unions, the DoH and NHS Employers through the Social Partnership Forum, makes a series of practical suggestions as to what NHS, social care, local government, independent and voluntary sector employers, and higher education institutions can do together to identify employment opportunities for newly qualified healthcare professionals.

Commending the forum participants, Health Minister Lord Hunt said: ‘The Social Partnership Forum demonstrates that collaboration between employers, unions and the Department of Health can provide a constructive way forward in improving job opportunities for new graduates.

'I am encouraged by the response of many employers in helping ensure new qualifiers are supported. There is much work to do but this report provides a number of options to help those who have made a significant personal commitment in undertaking training.'
