Training is a hugely important part of working for the NHS; it ensures that staff have the skills and knowledge they need to carry out their roles safely and effectively. In few other sectors is it as important that employees know how to keep themselves and their patients safe.
Training enables staff to provide better basic care at the point of contact – for instance, helping people dress, get out of bed and bathe. It also focuses on aspects like dispensing medication, promoting dignity, basic nutrition and hydration, and using equipment like hoists and lifts safely.
The NHS delivers modern IT & Digital Training Services on a wide range of IT and clinical systems to help optimise the use of these tools and build digital capability.
