Why is this HEAT target important?
This target supports implementation of the NHS Knowledge and Skills Framework (KSF). The NHS KSF is the third strand of the modernised NHS pay system Agenda for Change (AfC) which promotes delivery of best value across the NHS workforce. Implementation of the KSF will facilitate the effective learning and development of individuals and teams with all members of staff being supported to learn throughout their careers and develop their knowledge in a variety of ways. Embedding the KSF within NHSScotland will ensure that all staff are competent to deliver the required standards of care to ensure quality health services. Learning and development will be appropriately targeted to equip staff with the right knowledge and skills to meet the changing health needs of the population.
How are we performing?
Target to be delivered by March 2011
