AbstractThis article describes the process to formally accredit existing in-house education courses in a continuing professional development (CPD) framework. The partnership was between two Lothian NHS organisations and a higher education institution (HEI). The nature of the partnership and the differing approaches taken by the organisations are discussed. The authors explore the context of learning in the NHS in relation to the different organisations, and describe the issues identified and the strategies used to address these. The benefits to all stakeholders are listed. Although this case study refers to an initiative in Scotland, the framework model for flexible and work-based education could be adopted across the UK.
