The result of the work of that group is a report and set of recommendations to ministers for improvements that would develop a sustainable vision for the role of apprenticeships in the health sector in the medium to longer term. The  Department of Health welcomes the recommendations which support our desire  for delivery of apprenticeship in the health sector in the medium and longer term and  the wider Government agenda.
