The funding will mean Every nurse, midwife and allied health professional working acrosshospital and community care and general practice will have access to a personal training budget of more than £1,000 over three years to support their personal learning and development needs.

“More staff, working in rewarding jobs and supportive environments, will be key to delivering the improvements for patients we set out in theLong Term Plan. The nurses, midwives, care workers and other staff I speak to across England tell me time and again how important ongoing training is when they are thinking about their next career move, so I know today’s signal of intent will be welcomed across the health service.”
Enabling staff movement between organisations
New toolkit for employers
The interim People Plan set out our ambition for an increasingly multidisciplinary and adaptive workforce who can deliver care across primary, community and acute care. To deliver this we need to remove practical barriers to movement of staff between organisations. This toolkit is the first step of this free movement.
Enabling staff movement allows staff to temporarily work in differentsettings and provide continuity of care to patients when necessary. It removes the need for them to spend up to two days on staff inductions and other introductory administration on arrival.
To support this, we have published a new toolkit which provides examples of whereorganisations have successfully implemented passporting agreements to share their workforce across organisations and systems as and when the need arises.
The toolkit signposts users toEmployers’ recent comprehensive guidance covering everything employers need to address; provides sample ‘warranty’ text that organisations can consider using, as modified appropriately; and gives examples of agreements already operating in the that among other things, show how indemnity can be covered.
