Well, I have this from a very good source. "£2.5 bn fund (mansion tax, fags) to fund 20,000 nurses, and 8,000 GPs, 5,000 social/community care workers and 3,000 midwives by 2020".
There are problems with going down the workforce number target route. Not because it isn't important to have the right workforce - skill mix and numbers. It is important.
