All our clinical staff undertake 3 days of mandatory training per year. Two days of face to face training and one day of on line training.  The programme is revised and refreshed on a yearly basis to ensure that the staff have the skills and knowledge to deliver safe, effective,  and compassionate care.

The programme includes statutory training such as Health & Safety, Fire Evacuation, Resuscitation, and Anaphylaxis, the use of a Defibrillator, People Manual Handling, Infection control and managing medicines. In addition this year there are interactive workshop sessions on Spiritual Support and Working with Families, Communication skills, Equality and Diversity, and Bereavement Support.

In addition there are several on-line training modules that staff complete that support the workshop days. These 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.
