Feedback & Summary

MD Update – National (1)

Widening Participation Strategy

HEE has launched the national Widening Participation Strategy for consultation

The strategy sets out five key goals which include:

Improving the collection and monitoring of  data related to WP activity

Supporting more research  to explore the needs of  underrepresented groups Stimulating more collaborative models for outreach support between the NHS and education providers

The consultation will run until 30 September 2014

Shape of Caring Review - Call for Evidence

The Shape of Caring Review will explore whether current arrangements for education and training of nurses and care assistants will be fit for purpose over the next 10-15 years.

The call for evidence will learn from good practice across the UK.

Further information on the review and a template to provide evidence is available at

The closing date for evidence to be submitted is 17 September 2014

MD Update – National (2)

Care Certificate

The Care Certificate (Cavendish) which sets out the proposed minimum standards and competencies for Health Care Support Workers is currently being field tested with a range of employers across health and social care nationally

The purpose of the testing is to ascertain that the content and delivery of the Care Certificate is effective and fit for purpose.

19 organisations across the NW are currently reviewing and testing the guidance, and advising of potential implications that will need to be considered prior to national roll-out

The emerging issues in the NW include:

Positive recognition of the need and value for a set of standards.

Agreement that the proposed standards are relevant for all HCSWs although they are currently viewed as too hospital focused

More guidance about the assessment burden and implications with more flexibility being around timescales for completion

Full implementation is anticipated to go live in March 2015.

MD Update – National (3)

Medical, Dental and Public Health Specialty Recruitment

The latest recruitment round for specialty training has been launched

For the majority posts starting from October 2014 onwards, applications will open on Tuesday 2 September and close on Tuesday 16 September 2014. Interviews will be conducted between Monday 29 September and Wednesday 15 October 2014.

Further information is available at

Beyond Transition Update

The responses to the final consultation of the Beyond Transition programme were considered and the recommendations approved at the HEE Board in August

Arrangements for implementation are now underway

MD Update – Regional (1)

Return to practice – Nurses & Midwives

There are 23,000 lapsed registered nurses nationally who are potentially available to return to the nursing workforce

A Return to Practice campaign is being launched nationally to support those wishing to return

HENW has received national funding to support Trusts offering placements, pay for course fees and to provide a short term bursary to the returner

It is an expectation that on successful completion of the programme the Trust providing the placement experience will employ the Return to Practice participant.

Further info is available at

Pre Degree Year of Care Programme

National funding has been confirmed for the third cohort of the pre-degree year of care programme which will commence October 2014/February 2015

Info has been circulated to trusts – deadline for submissions is 12 September 2014

LWEG Forerunner Fund Monies

Cumbria & Lancashire - now reviewed all bids and recommendations are being finalised

Greater Manchester are currently accepting bids from organisations – these will be considered by the end of June

Cheshire & Mersey - developing one proposal to undertake a strategic workforce review across the whole of their sub region

Deanery Integration Update

New Deanery Functions branding agreed

Progress continues with the Design & Delivery Groups development of proposals to work towards a single PGMDE function across the North West

Final proposals and structural changes due for submission to be considered by the Steering Group and Project Board by the end of June

MD Update – Regional (2)

Urgent & Emergency Care Programme

Following the appointment of a regional Programme Lead (Suzanne Hughes) and an initial analysis of the current position, three major themes have been identified:

Need for greater connectivity in the NW with activity and developments nationally

Urgent to medium term solutions required to manage and improve the Emergency Department crisis

Longer term review of urgent care provision across the whole system needed

Consideration at the LETB Board in August – with more detailed discussion to take place at the LWEG meetings in September/October

Key actions include:

Establishment of a regional Steering Group and engagement with LWEGs to ensure local focus on geographical priorities

Development of a specific workstream to address the current ED crisis

Mapping of wider issues across primary and community care

Development of a wider programme of work focussing on Urgent and Emergency Care across the system

MD Update – Regional (3)

Lead Employer Contract in Greater Manchester and Cumbria and Lancashire

The current contract expires on 31 March 2015 and therefore HENW is now putting the contract out for re-tender for three years to support the move to one lead employer across the North West by 2018.

Education Placement Agreements

Manchester Medical School has written to its placement providers to clarify their expectations around the quality of education

HENW is writing to Chief Executives in support of this and confirming that MMS will act on our behalf in assessing the quality of placements

Providers relying on education support from other organisations, such as teaching hospitals, must ensure that they formally establish these or invest in alternative arrangements to fulfil their quality obligations
