HEE mandate mandate 2018-2019

Published: 5 March, 2019

The Department of Health and Social Care have published the Health Education England (HEE) mandate: 2018 to 2019 setting out the government’s objectives for HEE. It reflects strategic objectives for primary care set out in the the Long term Plan, including:

“More services provided out of hospitals, a larger primary care workforce and greater integration with social care, so that care is more joined up to meet people’s physical health, mental health and social care needs.”  HEE anticipate a significant growth in a primary care workforce which is more flexible and has skills that are transferable across all care settings.  The Mandate includes a number of primary care workforce goals by 2020 (p15) –

  • 5,000 more GPs
  • 5,000 more multiprofessional primary and community staff by 5,000 (including 1,000 Physician Associates)
  • 1,500 more clinical pharmacists in GP practices.

Other 2020 targets include

  • the upskilling, adoption and spread of musculoskeletal (MSK) practitioners in primary care. (p17)
  • end of life training for all staff delivering end of life care, especially in the five priorities for care of the dying person and the Ambitions Framework. (p25)
  • all healthcare staff are competent in the recognition of, and response to, sepsis. (p26)
  • embed genomics education at all levels of the current and future workforce. (p30)
  • tariffs for primary care education and training that better reflect the costs and benefits to employers of students and trainees successfully introduced. (p27)
