Personalised Care Charter and Commitment

Commitment 5 of the Personalised Care Strategy is to have a trained and skilled workforce. The Personalised Care Workforce Charter sets out how the Integrated Care Board (ICB) will support our workforce to embed and deliver good quality personalised care.  

Who is it aimed at? 

These standards are aimed at those staff in all settings who commission or who develop and design training programmes, and for the health and social care workforce, by setting out clear expectations of what training is required to deliver quality personalised care. 

In addition, this framework outlines the knowledge that informal carers and members of the public would benefit from, as well as understanding their role in seeking and accessing support within their own communities.
