Abstract

The new education commissioning system in the NHS in England offers opportunities to health care employers to achieve greater value for money. This article offers five means by which this could be achieved ‐ tighter contracting with Higher Education; moving from block to cost‐per‐student contracts; using alternative education providers; fostering multiprofessional core education and adopting more flexible training methods.
