Health Education England, Skills for Health and Skills for Care and have been working in collaboration to develop a person- and community-centred core skills education and training framework. Development of the framework has involved a wide range of stakeholders including citizen, patient and carer voice, voluntary sector organisations, Public Health England, Local Government, NHS England, Royal Colleges and the professional bodies, professional regulators and others.

A draft of the framework is now available and you are invited to review the draft framework and provide your comments and feedback by completing an on line survey.

Your responses to the survey will be treated confidentially and collated with other respondents to identify key themes and issues. The results of the survey will be used to further refine the framework, leading to the project completion during February 2017.

Please download a copy of the draft framework here

The consultation survey can be accessed here

Please submit your completed survey as soon as possible and by Monday 30th January 2017 at the latest.

Please do also forward the survey to any colleagues or networks who may wish to respond.
