Prevention, Health and Wellbeing and Health Inequalities are key national and regional priorities for the future of our nation and for the NHS. This was highlighted in recent ‘Fair Society, Healthy Lives’ Marmot review. The ‘Prevention and Lifestyle Behaviour Change: A Competence Framework’, has been developed to support NHS Yorkshire and the Humber’s key Public Health strategy ‘Making Every Contact Count’, to which there has already been an excellent response. Delivery on this subject has always been challenging and with this in mind we are aiming to support all involved in every way possible. The Framework will support all staff and organisations in the delivery of this important agenda. This framework will enable a common approach across all elements as everyone will be able to use the same base. We would encourage everyone in the workforce to engage with this framework to establish their current knowledge and skills on this subject. This will in turn support Service and Education commissioners and Education and Service providers with the measurable base line of their current workforce and identify what additional learning, new ways of working or service redesign may be required and what services can be commissioned now and in the future. We would like to thank the Faculty of Health and Wellbeing at Sheffield Hallam University. The development of this Framework has also been supported by collaboration with NHS Yorkshire and the Humber and the staff and organisations within Yorkshire and the Humber who have given of their time and knowledge to deliver this excellent product.
