The National CLEAR Programme provides innovation expertise, data analysis and a unique methodology to redesign clinical teams and services. This leads to innovative recommendations of new models of care and workforce which improves patient care and efficiency of organisations.

The National CLEAR Programme is sponsored by NHS Health Education England, which supports the development of the NHS workforce and delivered by 33n, a company formed of NHS clinicians and data scientists.

CLEAR is the only programme of its kind in the UK, as it solves complex health and care problems by simultaneously providing workforce and service redesign, and training clinicians to deliver it.


“Training is provided through e-learning; didactic teaching from experienced NHS clinicians, managers and data analysts; and close supervision from experienced mentors. In this way the fellows are able to…understand NHS and local trust processes…[and] analyse patient flow and workforce data to put forward innovative ideas and suggest new ways of working. The CLEAR programme also delivers the essential generic skills required by the GMC’s professional capabilities framework to provide safe, effective, high quality care…allowing the Fellows to develop into effective, motivated leaders in their fields in the future.”
