 The Shape of Caring review was published in March 2015 and sought to answer a key question about future healthcare: “How can we ensure that the education and training of Registered Nurses and care assistants is fit for purpose to support them in delivering high-quality care over the next 10–15 years” Led by independent chair, Lord Willis of Knaresborough, the report outlined the key priorities for the future education and training of health and care staff.
