Welcome to the Health and Care Staffing learning site.

Our workforce is the most important asset in the delivery of safe and effective care to the people of Scotland. Our skilled and compassionate health and social care employees make up the largest workforce in Scotland

In order to deliver safe and effective care we need to ensure there are the right people with the right skills in the right numbers and in the right place.

The introduction of the Health and Care (Staffing) (Scotland) Act 2019 now provides the statutory basis for the provision of appropriate staffing in health and social care services, enabling safe and high quality care and improved outcomes for staff as well as service users.

The Health and Care Staffing in Scotland Knowledge and Skills Framework has been developed to reflect the guiding principles for health and care staffing. It will support you in understanding the requirements of workload and workforce planning and your role in the application of the Health and Care (Staffing) (Scotland) Act 2019. 

Access the framework from the menu on the left hand side.
