Next day briefing: Fit and proper persons test framework

NHS England (NHSE) published a new Fit and Proper Persons Test (FPPT) Framework on 2 August 2023 alongside guidance for chairs on implementation and additional guidance for those who will be conducting the testing, entering the information into the Electronic Staff Record (ESR) and signing off the FPPT.  Parts of the framework take effect from 30 September 2023 with full implementation expected by 21 March 2024. Trust chairs are responsible for ensuring the FPPT is implemented effectively.


This briefing sets out the key elements of the framework, gives an overview of its contents, and includes our view on the framework and accompanying guidance.
