The responsibility is of the Department of Health; administrative units; scientific medical societies; healthcare organisations and others.
Undergraduate and junior doctors: the General Medical Council (GMC) publishes every 5 years a document currently called “Tomorrow’s Doctors” which sets out the required Learning Outcomes that doctors have to demonstrate in order to practice. Each medical school uses these to devise their own curriculum.
Specialist doctors / Consultants: every 5 years their Royal College (regulatory body) publishes a specialist curriculum – this does not happen at the same time but is staggered. Some of this is delivered by the Royal Colleges and some by other providers but the latter have to be accredited by the Royal College.
Nurses and AHPs: similar – their regulatory body publishes learning outcomes and providers devise curricula to include these. Managers: much more ad hoc. Initial training for graduate entrants in to the NHS – some managers are clinicians who have moved from their clinical field – responsibility for their training therefore tends to vary.
