Professionals Staff development Mandatory training All clinical staff undertake three days of mandatory training each year. This involves two days of face-to-face training and one day of online training. The programme is revised and refreshed on a yearly basis to ensure that staff are equipped to deliver the safe, effective and compassionate care which is at the heart of all we do. The programme includes statutory training such as health and safety, fire evacuation, resuscitation, and anaphylaxis, the use of a defibrillator, people manual handling, infection control and managing medicines. In addition, there are interactive workshop sessions on Spiritual Support and Working with Families, Communication Skills, Equality and Diversity and Bereavement Support. Supplementary online training modules include Safeguarding of Adults, the Mental Capacity Act, and DoLs, Data Security and Awareness training (IG) and also specific Health and Safety modules and an Equality and Diversity assessment.
