Health Education England (HEE) has published its response to the Shape of Caring review Raising the Bar

The review, led by Lord Willis of Knaresborough, explored how nurse and care assistant training could be improved to reflect changes in how healthcare will be delivered in the future. 

In the response, HEE has identified five priority areas:

  1. Excellence in nursing practice
  2. Valuing and developing the care assistant workforce
  3. Ensuring meaningful patient and public involvement
  4. Flexibility in pre-registration education
  5. Standards for post registration education

HEE sought views from a wide range of stakeholders, including healthcare providers, patients and representational groups. Professor Lisa Bayliss-Pratt, HEE's director of nursing said, "This is a real opportunity to deliver real change and I would like to thank everyone who has taken part in this exercise."
