Staff training and development

As a university hospital trust, we take the learning and development of our team very seriously. Whether you join us as a doctor or an administrative member of staff, we have hundreds of learning opportunities for you.

Our training programme offers an extensive range of courses, from first aid at work and clinical systems training to presentation skills and leadership development. We also offer our staff the opportunity to gain QCF (quality care framework) while at work.

We also pride ourselves on recognising talent and supporting people’s aspirations. We sponsor a number of healthcare assistants every year to undertake their nursing degrees, or to become an assisted practitioners. We have numerous opportunities for doctors too, which are run by our two postgraduate medical centres. Our postgraduate medical centre provides training for doctors at all stages of their career, as well as a stimulating lecture programme.
