The case studies included in this publication show how partnership working and effective use of the NHS Knowledge and Skills Framework (KSF) has been instrumental in helping organisations ensure that the benefits of Agenda for Change are fully realised.
The KSF is a key part of the Agenda for Change pay system. It applies to all staff employed on Agenda for Change terms and conditions. It is an organisational tool for describing the knowledge and skills that staff need to apply at work, in order to deliver high quality healthcare services for patients.
The KSF can be embedded simply, yet imaginatively, through good partnership working arrangements.
We hope this will be a useful source of reference for use in your own organisation. NHS Employers will continue to seek and to share good practice examples on the application of the KSF across the NHS.
For more information and examples of the benefits that the KSF is delivering locally, please refer to www.nhsemployers.org/KSFcasestudies.
