The new Training Centre has been officially unveiled
As part of the Trust commitment to invest in staff facilities a new two-storey Training Centre, with multimedia equipment to support learning, has been officially unveiled.
The new facility, based on the main hospital site, was built over the last twelve months and is already in use by groups of colleagues for induction, clinical and mandatory training.
The Training Centre will considerably enhance our training and educational offering as a teaching hospital and allow for growth in teaching capacity. It will be used as a shared resource, enabling system-wide educational initiatives with partner organisations.
“This is a great facility for our new and existing colleagues,” said CEO Sam Higginson, who cut the ribbon.
“The centre represents another milestone in the Trust’s commitment to invest in staff facilities. Having this modern space feels like a new beginning for our multi-professional education teams who’ll be able to carry out important essential training courses here.
“I’d also like to thank the N&N Hospitals Charity: this could not have been achieved without their considerable funding support.”
The Training Centre provides a new permanent home for Resuscitation, Manual Handling and Clinical skills training and provides increased training space for the Trust’s Staff and Leadership development training programmes.
The N&N Hospitals Charity has supported the high-quality delivery of training and has invested in the multimedia equipment to support both classroom and virtual delivery.
Further investment in clinical skills training equipment means that colleagues have a greater knowledge and understanding of how to apply their learning in the workplace using resuscitation manikins and apparatus to safely move patients.
The exterior of the building has also benefited from a charitable donation to make this an attractive and welcoming location for colleagues to receive vital essential training so that they can deliver the best care to our patients.
