A three phased project aims to address the integration of eyecare workforce development within wider initiatives (across population groups/specialties) and strengthen workforce capability and capacity to deliver eyecare on a whole-system basis across East of England.
Phase 1 aimed to 1) build the foundation for growing capability and capability of the whole workforce across different contexts to meet the needs of people with actual/potential eye conditions to optimise existing workforce ‘assets’, while taking a supportive approach to identifying and addressing learning needs and 2) make recommendations for Health Education England (Eastern); Integrated Care Systems (ICSs) and Higher Education Institutes (HEIs) to inform subsequent stages.
