KSF Updates

A number of you have asked how BCC links to your appraisal and KSF. In response we have added more information on the site.

If you aren't familiar with the KSF dimensions and are unsure about what the levels mean, you can follow this link to the NHS employers website which includes summary descriptions of the KSF Core dimensions which will help you understand the levels 1-4. 

  1. Communication

  2. Personal and people development

  3. Health, safety and security

  4. Service improvement

  5. Quality

  6. Equality and diversity


You may want to review your existing KSF outline and mark on the grid below what levels you need to meet. The red numbers indicate the average levels for health visitors at a band 6 & 7. If you don’t have an outline you may want to use the 6 core dimensions and think about the levels you need to demonstrate and where this fits with your project. If you aren't familiar with the KSF dimensions and are unsure about what the levels mean you can follow this link to the NHS employers website which includes summary descriptions of the KSF Core dimensions which will help you understand the levels 1-4. It also gives you more detailed information on appraisal and maximising the use of the KSF.
