NETS will open from 3 October – 28 November 2023.
The NETS is the only national survey open to all students, trainees and doctors and dentists in training undertaking a practice placement or training post in healthcare services across England. It is the voice of the current and future multi-professional healthcare workforce. By understanding your experience, we can work together to ensure that all individuals are supported to learn and train in safe and inclusive learning environments.
NHS England Education Quality teams triangulate NETS results with multiple education quality indicators, including other sources of learner feedback and soft intelligence, to form a comprehensive picture of the multi-professional practice learning environment. Together, this information is used to identify areas of good practice in addition to emerging and escalating concerns at a national, regional, organisational and professional level.
The results of the NETS will be published in January 2024 and will be available to view at national, regional, professional and provider-level with the option to analyse response data by programme and specialty.
NHS England are seeking to reach a larger number of Allied Health Profession students and trainees. Working collaboratively to reach as many students as possible will enable them to develop the broadest possible picture of clinical learning environments across England. This will provide a valuable source of evidence for all of us to drive improvement and learn from good practice.

EDI, allyship and subconscious bias presentation- by Gemma Cassidy, Mental Health / Wellbeing and EDI Lead, BAPO and Bhavna Mehta, Paediatric Orthotist in Alder Hey Children’s Hospital.
EDI talk for National Inclusion Week. This presentation will help to define what equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) is, who it protects, why it is important and what it means in clinical practice. We will also discuss allyship and how the wider P & O community can help to improve EDI, in addition to exploring the subconscious bias’ that we can all hold.
