star this property answer text <p>Employers are responsible for protecting their staff from sexual harassment by members of the public. Sexual harassment, a form of unlawful discrimination, should not be tolerated under any circumstances so staff who believe they have been subjected to it should report the incident(s). Employers should ensure they fully support these staff and work with them to ensure appropriate legal action is taken against perpetrators.</p><p>Our “call to action” to tackle bullying and harassment, led by the NHS Social Partnership Forum, chaired by Departmental ministers, is working with National Health Service system leaders, NHS organisations, staff and unions, to encourage the leadership and culture change required to eradicate bullying and all forms of harassment of our people. Now in its third year, one of the “call to action” priorities is tackling sexual harassment.</p><p>The partnership approach being adopted through our “call to action” will be built on by the interim NHS People Plan, published on 3 June 2019 which, over the summer, will develop a new offer for staff, part of which will be how to “create a healthy, inclusive and compassionate culture” including a focus on tackling bullying and harassment”.</p><p>The planned interventions and financial commitments from the “up to £2 million per year” allocated in the NHS Long Term Plan to tackling bullying and violence against staff, will be set out in the final NHS People Plan to be published after the Government’s Spending Review later this year.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Employers across the National Health Service are responsible for protecting the mental health of their staff. This has been identified as a priority in the interim NHS People Plan, published on 3 June, which says “we will develop a new offer with our people setting out explicitly the support they can expect from the NHS as a modern employer”….“Ensuring everyone feels they have voice, control and influence, including a focus on (amongst other issues) staff physical and mental health and wellbeing and reducing sickness absence”.</p><p>This new offer will be developed over the summer and published in the final People Plan after the Government’s spending review later this year. It is expected to address the staffing pressures causing stress and burnout by implementing recommendations from the recent Health Education England report on NHS staff and learner wellbeing, which set out some of the most serious causes of harm to our people’s mental health and wellbeing. Staff can already report working excess hours via their employer’s “Guardian of Safe Practice”.</p><p>The interim People Plan will build on the good work already underway across the NHS to protect staff mental health through the NHS staff health and wellbeing framework which helps organisations diagnose and implement services to meet staff needs including, for example, counselling and talking therapies to support their mental health.</p><p>The Framework and NHS Improvement’s NHS staff health and wellbeing collaborative of 73 trusts are incorporating the core and enhanced mental health standards from ‘Thriving at Work – a review of mental health and employers’ commissioned by the Government from the mental health charity MIND.</p><p>NHS England’s 2017/19 Commissioning for Quality and Innovation (CQUIN) incentive scheme has also been encouraging organisations to put in place appropriate interventions to support staff mental health based on improvements to the NHS Staff Survey question: “During the last 12 months have you felt unwell as a result of work related stress?” with providers expected to achieve an improvement of 5% points in the answer “no” compared to baseline staff survey results or achieve 75% of staff surveyed answering “no”.</p><p>The Department, over a number of years, has commissioned NHS Employers to provide a wide range of advice, guidance and good practice to support trusts in maintaining and improving their staff mental health and wellbeing.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Each individual medical school sets its own undergraduate medical curriculum. The delivery of the undergraduate curriculum has to meet the standards set by the General Medical Council (GMC), who then monitor and check to make sure that these standards are maintained. Curricula for medical training are designed to develop the skills and attributes required of doctors to deal effectively with whatever is presented to them.</p><p>The standards require the curriculum to be formed in a way that allows all medical students to meet the GMC’s Outcomes for Graduates by the time they complete their medical degree, which describe knowledge, skills and behaviour they have to show as newly registered doctors. The GMC updated the Outcomes for Graduates in 2018, following extensive engagement and consultation with medical education experts. The new version, which schools have to align their curricula to by 2020, includes principles and knowledge relating to molecular biology, describing human factors principles and practice and critical appraisal and analysis of clinical data.</p><p>The curricula for postgraduate specialty training is set by the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges for foundation training, and by individual royal colleges and faculties for specialty training. The GMC approves curricula and assessment systems for each training programme.</p><p>The GMC, with input from Health Education England and the devolved administrations, is currently reviewing postgraduate curricula to ensure they reflect general professional capabilities and meet future patient and service needs. Generic professional capabilities are a high level framework of common generic outcomes and content across all postgraduate medical curricula, and this includes the requirement for doctors to demonstrate and apply basic Human Factors principles and practice at individual, team, organisational and system levels.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The 2015 NHS Pension Scheme is a generous and valuable part of staff reward packages and remains one of the best schemes available. Its introduction ensures that National Health Service staff receive financial security in retirement, and that the scheme is affordable to the taxpayer.</p><p>The Government recognises that NHS doctors have raised concerns about pension tax charges being a factor in their decisions to retire early or limit their NHS commitments.</p><p>We are listening to concerns raised that the tapered annual allowance is affecting the retention of doctors in the NHS. 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>
