NHS Health Check Competency Framework and Learner and Assessor Workbook

Competency Framework

The NHS Health Check Competency Framework sets out the core competencies, clinical skills competencies and programme competencies required to carry out a NHS Health Check.

Whilst the NHS Health Check can be delivered in different settings by different healthcare professionals, all those delivering the check should hold these competences. This document should be used as the template for minimum standards when developing any training packages for people who deliver the check.

Learner and Assessor Workbook

The NHS Health Check Learner and Assessor Workbook accompanies the Competency Framework. The workbook supports commissioners and providers of the NHS Health Check to assess and evidence their staff’s competence against the required competencies and can be used as a tool to identify any training gaps.

This offers commissioners and providers the reassurance of a consistent approach to following best practice and achieving the minimum standards.
