  • Increase Confidence of Triangulation of Data:
    • Increase student feedback (e.g. Questionnaire / whistle blowing email / graduate survey)
    • Increase employer feedback (e.g. Employer questionnaire / overview of partnership working in self assessment)
    • Establishing saturation of data – when do we know this is the truth?
    • Establishing data sets to trigger further investigation (e.g. Annual Monitoring Reports by professional bodies)

Evaluation of ECQ Pilot:Future Challenges
  • Quality is a Perception - Tensions:
    • Service user perceptions of quality...
    • “a student reported I was left on my own....”
    • e.g. Professional body requirements, vs. Education commissioner requirements
    • e.g. Programme meets professional body standards, however attrition is high

What was the gap?

  • Historic multi-professional gap between Education Providers, Placement Providers and Undergraduate Medical and Dental Schools

Contractual Relationships:

  • Learning and Development Agreements (LDA) between NHSWM and Placement Providers
  • National Contracts between NHSWM and Higher Education Institutions (Education Providers)

What we did:

  • Large multi-professional stakeholders groups from Placement, HEIs and SHA were involved with the development of EPPA document and pledges

turning principles into pledges
Turning Principles into Pledges
  • The pledges...
  • Reflect a common understandingof how our relationshipsfunction
  • Capture the key roles and responsibilities of all partners in relation to each specific area
  • Represent a commitment by all
  • Have been agreed by all partners equally
  • Aspirationalandnot legally binding
the future
The Future...

What we know:

  • DH consultation Liberating the NHS: Developing the Healthcare Workforce (DEC 2010) sets out proposals to change the way the healthcare sector plans, trains and develops its workforce
  • It proposes the introduction of Provider Skills Networks (PSN)
the future1
The Future...

Current knowledge to date:

Providers need to form PSN as a legal body that will among other functions:

  • Manage and coordinate workforce plans for their health economy
  • Consult with communities to develop a local skills and development strategy
  • old and allocate funds
  • Commission/monitor/performance manage contracts for the provision of education and training (E&T) while quality assuring E&T standards and value for money
the future2
The Future...

Current knowledge to date:

Key national design principles require PSN to be:

  • Provider and employerdriven
  • Multi professional
  • Able to evidence strong clinical and professional engagement and partnerships with Higher Education Institutions
the future3
The Future...

Current knowledge to date:

DH propose a new national leadership body – Health Education England (HEE) which will be a statutory body and special health authority to support:

  • National leadership on workforce planning and development
  • Allocate and accountforresources that promote high quality Education and Training and develop Provider Skills Networks
  • The proposed timelinefor change... March? July?
the future risks
The Future... Risks
  • Timescales are very tight
  • Disruption of services
  • Loss of knowledge
  • Resources spread too thin
  • Governance needs balance
  • Functions fragmented
  • Providers may disengage
  • Provider behaviour may not be strategic
the future opportunities
The Future... Opportunities

  • Local sensitivity
  • Time for change
  • New ways of working
