Welcome to Health Education England’s regular stakeholder bulletin.

In this bulletin we will provide:

  • Latest messages from our Chief Executive
  • COVID-19 latest updates
  • Overview of HEE education and training news
  • An update from your regional office

Weekly messages from HEE

Read recent messages from Dr Navina Evans, Chief Executive, HEE:

HEE looking to the future for the health and social care workforce
HEE has been commissioned by the Minister of State for Care, Helen Whately, to work with our partners and review long term strategic trends for the health and social care workforce.

This will review, renew and update the existing long term strategic framework for the health workforce, HEE’s Framework 15, to help ensure we have the right numbers, skills, values and behaviours to deliver world leading clinical services and continued high standards of patient care. For the first time ever, the framework will also include registered professionals working in social care, like nurses and occupational therapists.

Make sure your voice is heard

HEE has launched its formal ‘Call for Evidence’ aimed at developing a shared understanding of the future of the health and care workforce. We want to hear from as many stakeholders and partners as possible, including people who need care and support, patients, carers, members of the workforce, as well as students and trainees. Please complete the survey today.

This Call for Evidence will support the development of a long term strategic framework for health and social care workforce planning. This will review, renew and update the existing 15-year strategic framework for workforce planning, Framework 15. While Framework 15 focused on health only, this update will extend into social care, encompassing regulated professionals in social care for the first time.

 

HEE COVID-19 latest updates

We have created a COVID-19 update webpage that provides guidance and information from HEE, which applies to all students and trainees. This webpage also includes HEE COVID-19 surge guidance.

To keep up to date with plans for medical training recovery, visit HEE COVID-19 webpages.

Minimising disruption and avoidable extensions caused by COVID-19’

In the second of a series of regular updates on the recovery of training, HEE’s Deputy Medical Director Sheona MacLeod, discusses how HEE is supporting educators to meet with doctors in training and understand their individual competence gaps and to mitigate the number and length of extensions to training.

We are collating a wide range of training intervention case studies from across the country. These will be added to over the next few weeks, and we are keen to encourage all employers, educators, and trainees to consider whether any of these solutions will help training progression for them individually or within their local area or region. Also, please share your training recovery suggestions with us at policyandregulation@hee.nhs.uk.

Read the full update on how HEE is working with the system to fund and support doctors to progress through training.   

 

We are supporting all professions to rapidly grow to meet the needs of patients:

Medical

Enhancing Junior Doctors’ Working Lives
Trainee doctors have shared their views on their training, working lives and wellbeing in a report, published today by Health Education England (HEE).

Enhancing Junior Doctors Working Lives (EJDWL) is a detailed look at how HEE has supported its trainee doctors over the last year. During 2020, many of them have had their education impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. HEE would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to everyone involved: trainees and trainers, HEE and system colleagues, and the front-line NHS who form the pillar of the NHS community.

Flexible working options, more dynamic recruitment rounds, and a review of the assessment and progression process are some of the positive actions recognised by trainees in this year’s report. HEE has committed to embed the lessons learned from the COVID pandemic into everyday working, and to integrate new processes and approaches to support education and training in the future.

 

Pharmacy

The Trainee Pharmacist Foundation Year Programme

Over 500 pharmacy employers, education leads and training providers joined our webinars with NHSE/I and the General Pharmaceutical Council earlier this month, to focus on the implementation of the 2021/22 foundation training year.

This system-wide approach was a great opportunity to explain the key changes to education and training initiated by the regulator earlier this year, and to showcase brand new resources available to help support the changes.

You can find out more on our trainee pharmacist foundation year website.

Download the webinar resources from our dedicated designated supervisor page.  If you have any questions about the initial education and training of pharmacists and foundation training, please contact traineepharmacist@hee.nhs.uk.

 

Mental health

New Individual Placement Support mental health career resources to share – employment specialist role

We are pleased to launch a new Individual Placement Support (IPS) career resource, hosted on the elearning for healthcare website, to raise awareness of the IPS employment specialist role.

These animated videos support IPS evidence-based services in promoting roles that provide employment support services integrated within community mental health teams for people who experience severe mental health conditions.

The NHS Long Term Plan is committed to supporting an additional 35,000 people with severe mental illnesses where this is a personal goal to find and retain employment by 2023/24. To help us achieve this commitment, please share these resources with your networks to attract people to work in this rewarding role.

This animation is part of a series of workforce initiatives and will complement the emerging IPS recruitment hub launching August 2021. If you have any questions or would like to find out more, please email mentalhealth@hee.nhs.uk or visit the Individual Placement Support programme elearning for healthcare webpage. 

 

Workforce and education initiatives

HEE wins award at the ‘Oscars’ of the apprenticeship world

The Talent for Care National Apprenticeship Team are celebrating winning a national award for their work supporting employers to deliver apprenticeship programmes.

The team have been awarded ‘the outstanding contribution to the development’ in the employer’s category at the FE Week and Association of Employment and Learning Providers (AELP) Apprenticeship Awards 2021. This is the second year running the HEE’s work with apprenticeships has been recognised.

The awards are a celebration of excellence in apprenticeship delivery in the UK and provide an opportunity to recognise the contribution of employers and providers.

 

The Future of Clinical Bioinformaticians in the NHS: An Assessment Report and Recommendations to Build and Boost the Future Workforce

HEE’s Digital Readiness Programme has commissioned a report to evaluate the current situation and shape the future of the clinical bioinformatics workforce in the NHS.

Clinical bioinformatics is the application of bioinformatics in clinical settings to improve the delivery of patient care. Clinical bioinformaticians are already an important workforce in the NHS and with the proliferation of digital technologies, their importance is set to increase. This two-phase project aims to assess the retention and utilization of clinical bioinformaticians in the NHS trusts, as well as to develop and implement necessary strategies for improvement. Read the report and provide feedback on the 10 recommendations that have been developed to improve the future of clinical bioinformatics as a profession in the NHS

 

Professional communities and networking for Health & Social Care informatics specialists: Consultation report

In 2020, HEE commissioned a discovery project to understand the needs of health and social care informatics professionals and their participation and involvement in networks, to improve professional and service development in the future. Through this work five recommendations were developed.

However, there were some gaps in this engagement from people early on in their careers and within certain sectors of the NHS and Social Care. In view of this, HEE decided to further test the recommendations with those that had not had an opportunity to input in the discovery project and this report gives an overview of these additional findings.


Resources developed to help reduce the impact of antibiotic resistance

We have launched two new videos to help support health and care staff in a variety of settings to understand and prevent the threats posed by antimicrobial resistance.

These video resources have been developed by HEE in collaboration with Public Health England (PHE), NHS England and NHS Improvement, Care Quality Commission and National Institute for Health and Care Excellence. They can be found on HEE’s YouTube Channel: https://youtu.be/wgqgqZIv8n4 and https://youtu.be/ONAivOFFV4A.

 

HEE provides two invaluable resources for clinicians in training

Newly qualified and junior doctors along with trainee pharmacists can tap into two invaluable resources as begin their transition during August rotation.

Our NHS Knowledge and Library Services team funds online access to over 130 medical handbooks published by Oxford University Press (OUP) and the clinical decision-making tool, BMJ Best Practice.

Both resources give clinicians an additional boost to their professional expertise and reassuring them they are making the right decisions backed by trusted evidence 24/7. All titles in the Oxford Medical Handbooks series as well as Oxford Handbooks in Nursing and the ‘Emergencies In…’ series are included while BMJ Best Practice provides step by step guidance on diagnosis, prognosis, treatment and prevention as well as medical calculators, how-to videos and patient information leaflets.

Get the handbooks at HEE/OUP site and BMJ Best Practice at bmj.com/hee . Both available via NHS OpenAthens (instructions here) or if you need help getting access please ask your Trust library team – they’ll be happy to guide you!

New session added to Suicide and Self-harm Prevention module

Posted on: July 22nd, 2021 by Louise Garrahan No Comments

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has added a new elearning session to its adult Suicide and Self-harm Prevention module within the MindEd programme.

The new session – Formulation and Working Across Agencies in Self-harm – helps learners understand the ways in which different mental health services can work together to support people with suicidal ideas.

The resource discusses the case of a young adult who presents to services with suicidal ideation and self-harm. The resource reviews the ways services may work together to manage risk and provide support.

Learners can work through this video-rich case study session on their own or in a face to face group setting. Additional materials are provided as downloadable PDFs to complement the resource. This includes learning points at key moments in the videos.

By the end of this session, which takes approximately 30 minutes to complete, learners will gain an understanding of features which may promote or hinder continuity of care between services, such as effective collaboration and sharing key information, and how this will impact positively or negatively on delivery of care.

The session is aimed at health and care professionals who, within their daily work, may encounter people feeling suicidal and/or self-harming, such as GPs, paramedics, emergency department colleagues, university mental health support staff, community mental health teams and social workers.

The latest session is the 6th and final session within the Suicide and Self-harm Prevention module, which is free to access.

For more information and to access the resource, visit the Formulation and Working Across Agencies in Self-harm session.

MindEd is a free educational and training resource for mental health support. The variety of free resources aims to provide adults, across professions and organisations and including parents and carers, with the knowledge to support wellbeing, the understanding to identify young and older people at risk of a mental health condition and the confidence to act on their concern and, if needed, signpost to services that can help.

New Introduction to Integrated Care Systems for Early Career Pharmacy Professionals elearning programme now available

Posted on: July 22nd, 2021 by Louise Garrahan No Comments

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has worked in partnership with the Interim Foundation Pharmacist Programme (IFPP) team to develop a new programme that introduces Integrated Care Systems (ICS) to trainee pharmacists, early career pharmacists and other pharmacy team members.

All areas in England were mandated to be part of an ICS by April 2021. 42 ICSs have now been established, bringing together various NHS organisations, local authority, and strategic partner organisations in collaboration to plan and deliver better and more integrated care for their local population.

Pharmacy teams provide services across health and care settings, working with other healthcare professionals and teams. Pharmacy leaders are also members of strategic and operational teams that are responsible and accountable for the planning and delivery of services within ICSs. It is essential for members of the pharmacy team to understand how they contribute to achieve the priorities of their local ICS.

The elearning programme aims to introduce early career pharmacy professionals to the principles underpinning ICS based on the NHS Long Term Plan and how the pharmacy team fits into ICS structures. The following topics are covered within the programme:

  • Principles of Integrated Care Systems (ICS)
  • Structures, organisations and partners within an ICS
  • Patient interactions within an ICS
  • Pharmacy teams’ contributions to planning and implementation of services within an ICS

Interactive case studies illustrating how various teams and systems integrate to provide joined up care for individuals are provided.

For more information and to access the session, please visit the Introduction to Integrated Care Systems (ICS) for Early Career Pharmacy Professionals programme page.

Care Certificate elearning programme launches hit 2 million

Posted on: July 15th, 2021 by Leanne Hargreaves No Comments

The Care Certificate elearning programme has passed the milestone of 2 million session launches.

Developed by Health Education England (HEE), Skills for Care and Health Education England’s elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh), the Care Certificate elearning programme continues to be an essential resource for the health and care workforce in developing the knowledge needed to successfully pass the Care Certificate.

Those expected to complete the Care Certificate may include employees new to care, adult social care workers, carers in a residential or nursing home, a hospice or home care worker. It is also available to those working in non caring roles such as in the kitchen and maintenance teams.

This programme of elearning has been developed to support the theoretical component of each standard of the Care Certificate. The resources also include a Student Toolkit and an Assessor Toolkit, providing support on how to use the elearning programme to achieve the Care Certificate. It is freely available to access for staff in the health and care sectors.

Visit the Care Certificate programme page to find out more about the elearning programme and for details of how to access.

Dr Navina Evans marks NHS73 birthday with special thank you message to NHS staff

HEE COVID-19 latest updates

We have created a COVID-19 update webpage that provides guidance and information from HEE, which applies to all students and trainees. This webpage also includes HEE COVID-19 surge guidance.

To keep up to date with plans for medical training recovery, visit HEE COVID-19 webpages.

We must unite training and service recovery

In the first of a series of regular updates on the recovery of training, HEE’s Deputy Medical Director Sheona MacLeod, highlights the positive impact of unifying service and training recovery both now, and for the future.

Following the intense winter with COVID we are all acutely aware of the impact of the pandemic on all NHS clinical services. However, perhaps a less talked about, but equally significant issue for short-term recovery and the longer-term sustainability of these services, is the urgent need to get the training back on track for large numbers of postgraduate medical trainees. Read the full update on how HEE is working with the system to fund and support doctors to progress through training.

 Building a more supportive culture for returning trainees

HEE has launched a new video to encourage a positive training environment for trainees returning to training after time away. The film features an array of people promotion a supporting culture for returning trainees: from trainees themselves to consultants, academics such as Professor Michael West, and NHS leaders, including HEE’s Dr Navina Evans and NHS England and Improvement’s Prerana Issar.

The SuppoRTT (Supported Return to Training) programme recognises that every trainee will have different needs when they return to training and provides tools and resources to enable all trainees to feel confident, supported and prepared to return to training, whatever their formal training programme. This promotes trainee wellbeing and safe, high quality patient care.

By encouraging a supportive culture at every level, we want to ensure that every trainee is able to explain where they are up to and what specific support they need.

Find out more and watch the video.

We are supporting all professions to rapidly grow to meet the needs of patients:

Workforce and education initiatives

HEE has launched a dedicated website for Advanced Practice

Building a recognised and visible advanced practitioner workforce is a priority for the NHS; there is a clear and identified need for highly experienced clinicians who are trained to an advanced level of practice.

HEE established the Centre for Advancing Practice to oversee the workforce transformation of advanced level practice, by establishing and monitoring standards for education and training, accrediting advanced level programmes, supporting and recognising practitioners, and growing and embedding the advanced and consultant practice workforce.

Blending across continents

The Blended Learning programme team is co-ordinating a series of three international roundtables with colleagues in California. Bringing together nursing leaders, subject matter experts and influencers ‘Sharing thoughts on simulation, regulation and workforce management’ will allow the invited participants to share ideas, data, experience and expertise to increase the impact of research. The series will result in the joint publication of a report (whitepaper) from the discussions and learning after the last event in November.

The first meeting took place on 30 June and focused of the impact of emerging technologies and simulation in the education and training of the current and future workforce. It was fully attended by all invitees with a lot of enthusiasm and drive to progress this agenda for nursing education and overall healthcare education.

Future round tables will look at ‘How can assurance be provided to regulators when using emerging technologies and simulation in education and training to meet required regulatory standards/ outcomes?’ and finally ‘How will emerging technologies, simulation and regulation impact the workforce in relation to new roles, new ways of working, recruitment, retention, upskilling and shortages?’

Estates and facilities apprenticeships employer engagement event
HEE will host an estates and facilities apprenticeships employer engagement event on the afternoon of 12 July.

The event will deliver useful information and discuss practical steps for employers that are considering using apprenticeships within NHS Estates and Facilities directorates. The event will provide the opportunity to discuss a wide range of apprenticeships applicable to Estates and Facilities including cleaning, hospitality, leadership, painting and decorating, joinery and engineering.
