Training and Development

We are committed to providing learning and development opportunities for all staff both professionally and personally. We recognise that continuing professional development (CPD), life-long learning and the Knowledge and Skills Framework are key to delivering high quality patient care – they underpin the skills and knowledge required in each role. 

Our learning & development team enable staff to take responsibility for managing their own learning and ensures they learn the right things in the right way, at the right time and for the right reasons.
