Career & Core Capabilities Framework for primary care nurses out for consultation
Published: 24 July, 2020
The General Practice Nursing Workforce Development Plan – Recognise, Rethink and Reform published in 2016 included a ten-point action plan for General Practice Nurses. The development of a Primary Care & General Practice Nursing Career & Core Capabilities Framework will support Health Education England to achieve the aims of the action plan. It will include opportunities for all nurses at all levels within primary care including the Nursing Associate, Mental Health and Learning Disability Nursing.
This will be particularly relevant to employers such as PCN Clinical Directors, GPs and Practice Managers, commissioners, (e.g. for workforce planning), education providers (e.g. to inform the design and delivery of curricula) and to patients, nurses and colleagues in multi-disciplinary teams.
The draft framework identifies six career levels that are required for nursing within primary care/general practice while the Core Capabilities Framework articulates core capabilities necessary for safe and effective care.
Consultation ends on Friday 7 August 2020.
