    Health Education England (HEE) has announced that its new £10 million training programme, intended to ‘boost’ the critical care workforce, will be rolled out this autumn. According to HEE, the funds it secured earlier this year will provide nurses and Allied Health Professionals with a ‘nationally recognised pathway’ to further their careers in Adult Intensive Care Units (ICUs). Specialist training, delivered through a ‘blended learning package’ could help to strengthen the ICU workforce across England and will offer around 10,500 nursing staff the chance to undertake courses and ‘further their careers’. There will be a focus on flexible training – enabling participants to balance family and caring commitments, as well as taking into account those who are unable to travel, when the roll-out of the programme begins. The learning will be delivered by higher education institutions, Critical Care Skills Networks and acute trusts, and it is expected to take participants up to 12 months to receive the standardised qualification. It’s hoped that the programme could lead staff to career opportunities such as becoming a shift leader or clinical educator, or to lead on research.

    Collectively, allied health professionals (AHPs) are the third largest clinical workforce in the NHS: there are 185,000 AHPs working in 14 professions across the spectrum of health and care, education, academia, research, the criminal justice system and the voluntary and private sectors. This NHS England strategy is for the whole AHP community, including support workers, assistant practitioners, registered professionals, pre-registration apprentices and students. It aims to reflect how AHPs work in multidisciplinary teams, so that the AHP community working in a variety of health and care sectors can use it to continually improve and redesign services.

    "It’s time to halt, take a break, and redraw the relationship between patient care and self-care. Self-care isn’t an optional luxury. It must sit at the heart of what we do, to ensure our teams can continue to rise to the challenges of working in the 21st century NHS, to give our patients the best of both ourselves, and the organisation so many of us are proud to be a part of."

    The fair treatment of staff supports a culture of fairness, openness and learning in the NHS by making staff feel confident to speak up when things go wrong, rather than fearing blame. Supporting staff to be open about mistakes allows valuable lessons to be learnt so the same errors can be prevented from being repeated. In any organisations or teams where a blame culture is still prevalent, this guide will be a powerful tool in promoting cultural change.

    The phrase ‘assistive technology’ is often used to describe products or systems that support and assist individuals with disabilities, restricted mobility or other impairments to perform functions that might otherwise be difficult or impossible. An assistive technology product can be classed either as a medical device, which needs a CE mark and is regulated by the applicable legislation, or it can be an ‘aid for daily living’. It depends on the claims made by the manufacturer. This guidance set out by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) helps manufacturers and healthcare professionals understand the definition of assistive technology and the difference between medical devices and aids to daily living.
