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.

We encourage staff to learn in a way that suits them as individuals. We offer a wide variety of learning and development opportunities throughout the year to ensure all staff have the opportunity to meet learning objectives set out in their annual personal development plan.
