NHS Education for Scotland / SFC Joint Action Plan

In May 2008 NHS Education for Scotland and SFC signed a Memorandum of Understanding, with a supporting Joint Action Plan [PDF]. This set out our commitment to work closely together to support the efficient delivery of healthcare education provision across universities and colleges, support workforce developments in territorial NHS Boards as well as national strategies related to health education within core and existing funding.

This partnership has already delivered much, including support for territorial National Health Service Boards in the development of healthcare support workers and and the Clinical Skills Network.

As we enter an ever tightening fiscal environment, both organisations have renewed their commitment to the partnership. We intend to focus on ensuring that we support both the health and education sectors dealing with changes to the NHS workforce. Other key activities will include improving our joint advice and support to Scottish Government priorities such as widening access to medicine.
