NDM6084 Paul Davies (Preseli
To propose that the National Assembly for Wales:
1. Notes that the retention of the frontline workforce is a major challenge facing the NHS in Wales.
2. Believes that the Welsh Government must outline its response to recent increases in the number of vacancies for doctors in the Welsh NHS.
3. Recognises, with concern, that stress-related illnesses are increasingly responsible for ambulance service staff being absent from work, and the impact this could have on the longer-term recruitment and retention of staff.
4. Calls on the Welsh Government to implement a clear, comprehensive strategy which outlines how the Welsh Government will prioritise frontline staff recruitment and retention and tackle issues pertaining to low staff morale during the course of the fifth Assembly.
