NHS Digital and NHS England have been working collaboratively to develop existing technologies to enable digital supervision in primary care. The digital components of the platform are being developed from NHS Digital’s Digital Learning Solutions system which already hosts the well-established and well utilised IT Skills Pathway Service.
With the help of General Practice Nurses and GP leaders nationally, the platform will include a document repository, electronic evaluation and search function, with supporting video-conferencing facilities, all to enable remote supervision.
Developed alongside the platform will be a consistent national model of supervision for General Practice Nurses which the platform is destined to enable.
