star this property answer text <p>The education funding reforms, which came into force in 2017, unlocked the cap which constrained the number of pre-registration nursing, midwifery and allied health profession training places allowing more students to gain access to nurse degree training courses.</p><p> </p><p>Health Education Institutes (HEIs) are autonomous private institutions and are responsible for setting the number of training places they offer. It is for HEIs to work as part of their local health economy to secure training places.</p><p>The Department does not hold information on the level of pre-registration undergraduate nursing places filled at individual HEIs, compared with the number of places they made available in the given period.</p><p>The Office for Students publishes annual data on the number of entrants onto pre-registration nursing undergraduate nursing courses broken down by individual HEIs. Higher Education Students Early Statistics have published the 2018/19 data, which is available at the following link:</p><p> </p><p><a href="https://www.officeforstudents.org.uk/data-and-analysis/data-collection/get-the-heses-and-heifes-data/" target="_blank">https://www.officeforstudents.org.uk/data-and-analysis/data-collection/get-the-heses-and-heifes-data/</a></p><p> </p><p>The Department monitors student recruitment at a national level. The latest published data from the University and Colleges Admissions Service from February 2019 shows that there has been a 4.5% increase in applicants to nursing or midwifery courses at English universities when compared to this time last year in 2018. However, we know that there is further work to do with the education and healthcare sector to ensure that students continue to apply for these places.</p><p> </p><p>The NHS Long Term Plan set out the next step in our mission to make the National Health Service a world class employer and deliver the nursing workforce the NHS needs. To deliver on these commitments the NHS has published on 3 June 2019 an interim People Plan that sets out the action we will take now and over the long term to meet the challenges of nursing supply, including nursing undergraduate supply.</p><p>We recognise, however, that there is more to do which is why the NHS will publish a final People Plan soon after the conclusion of the Spending Review.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department is helping to promote flexible working for doctors and nurses through the interim NHS People Plan which outlines the new offer for staff and sets out what support will be offered to National Health Service staff including flexible working. The interim NHS People Plan will be developed over the summer with publication of the final version expected after the spending review later this year.</p><p>The Government also made a manifesto commitment to “…strengthen the entitlement for NHS employees to flexible working to help those with caring responsibilities for young children or older relatives.” This includes the improvement in the use of technology to help trusts with e-rostering and e-job planning to optimise the use of their permanent and temporary workforces.</p><p>The Junior Doctor’s contract agreement provides for £1,000 less than full time trainee allowance to recognise additional costs such trainees face.</p><p>NHS Improvement continues to promote flexible working for staff including doctors and nurses through its NHS Staff Retention Collaborative. This initiative initially focussed on nurses and clinicians working in mental health but has now been extended to all staff groups<sup>1</sup>.</p><p>Flexible working for all staff including doctors and nurses is promoted through the NHS Constitution which states that staff have the right “to fair treatment regarding leave, rights and flexible working” and also states that “employers…must consider flexible working requests by employees with at least 26 weeks continuous service”.<sup>2</sup></p><p>The Department is currently working closely with NHS Improvement to roll out smarter staff banks. As well as reducing reliance on expensive recruitment agencies, staff banks provide a further opportunity for flexible working in the NHS. Effective staff banks can give staff the freedom to manage their own time, using simple, user-friendly technologies to pick up shifts when they want them, get paid quickly, and have control over their pension contributions. Furthermore, where several banks are joined together into collaborative banks, trusts can dramatically increase the size of the flexible workforce they can reach and increase the opportunities for those working flexibly to choose the shifts that fit in with their lives.</p><p>Notes:</p><p><sup>1</sup> <a href="https://improvement.nhs.uk/resources/improving-staff-retention/" target="_blank">https://improvement.nhs.uk/resources/improving-staff-retention/</a></p><p><sup>2 </sup><a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/770675/The_Handbook_to_the_NHS_Constitution_-_2019.pdf" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/770675/The_Handbook_to_the_NHS_Constitution_-_2019.pdf</a></p>

star this property answer text <p>Improving the mental health of our National Health Service staff including doctors is a top priority. Last year, NHS England announced the expansion of the Practitioner Health Programme, a free and confidential NHS service to treat doctors’ mental health or addiction problems, in particular where these might affect their work.</p><p>The Department also continues to discuss doctors’ contractual terms and conditions of service with the British Medical Association and employers to ensure they are up to date, fit for purpose helping protect their mental health and wellbeing through negotiated improvements.</p><p>As set out in the interim NHS People Plan, like all NHS staff, doctors should benefit from NHS work over the summer to “develop a new offer with staff setting out explicitly the support they can expect from the NHS as a modern employer” including ensuring everyone feels they have voice, control and influence, which covers staff mental health and wellbeing. This will be published after the Spending Review and could include implementation of recommendations from Health Education England’s NHS Staff and Learner Mental Wellbeing Programme report such as introducing Well Being Guardians in NHS trusts, personal wellbeing supervisors for learners including doctors in training, NHS organisations independently examining the death by suicide of any member of NHS staff or learner working in the NHS and “safe spaces” accessible to all for reflection, learning and breaks.</p><p>The new offer will build on the progress being made in implementing the NHS staff health and wellbeing framework which provides organisations with diagnostic and intervention options to help them provide the mental health services their staff need such as counselling and talking therapies. The Framework and NHS Improvement’s s staff health and wellbeing collaborative of 73 trusts embed the mental health standards set out in ‘Thriving at Work – a review of mental health and employers’ commissioned by the Government. Implementing ‘Thriving at Work’ is a requirement under the NHS Standard contract.</p><p>NHS England’s 2017/19 Commissioning for Quality and Innovation (CQUIN) Incentive scheme has been encouraging trusts to improve the services they provide to help staff mental health with payments for improvement in the percentage of staff answering “no” to the NHS Staff Survey question “During the last 12 months have you felt unwell as a result of work related stress?”</p>

The Government is prepared to take action and will bring forward a public consultation on targeted proposals to make NHS pensions more flexible for senior clinicians by allowing them a 50% reduction in pension contributions for half the pension accrual.</p><p>The British Medical Association’s view this proposal as a step in the right direction. The Department will listen carefully during consultation to reach a final proposition that works for both staff and taxpayers. The consultation gives an opportunity for groups and individuals to put forward their views.</p><p>Additionally, the scope of the voluntary ‘Scheme Pays’ facility, implemented by the NHS Pension Scheme to allow scheme members to pay annual allowance charges from the value of their pension benefits rather than upfront, has been extended to cover the payment of tax charges from breaches of the tapered annual allowance. The Government keeps the impact of public sector pay and pensions policies under constant review.</p>
