Welcome to the Perinatal Mental Health Competency Framework

How to start?

To store your responses, you will need an e-LfH Hub account. The Perinatal Competency Framework tool is developed by e-Learning for Healthcare, part of Health Education England.

I already have an e-LfH account

I want to register for an e-LfH account. You will need to return to this page once your account is fully set up, and use the "Log in" option above

If you don't want to store your responses, you can preview the framework without logging in.

This framework from Health Education England outlines the skills, knowledge and abilities required for any healthcare professional to work with all people in the perinatal period.
You can use it to record your own competencies and those you’re working towards, or even research other roles in the perinatal field and your ongoing career development.
At Health Education England, we’ll be collecting the data you enter and using it to support the delivery of excellent healthcare and health improvement to the patients and public, by ensuring that the workforce of today and tomorrow has the right numbers, skills, values and behaviours, at the right time and in the right place.
