It is of paramount importance that you undertake an Induction to the Trust. This is to ensure all new staff receive relevant risk management training and are integrated in their team in a safe and efficient way. This enables the Trust to give assurance and ensure compliance with its statutory and regulatory obligations. This is also one of the requirements by NHS E and the GMC, promoting excellence: standards for medical education and training.

February & August Changeover

The Medical Education Induction is arranged by the Specialty Training Administrator at February & August changeovers, a BLS Update from the Resus team is included at this Induction.  The February and August ST Inductions are a great opportunity to meet others who are starting at the Trust and also to meet members of the Medical Education team who are here to support you throughout your time here.

Out of Sync Starters

If you are starting outside of February & August, known as “Out of Sync”, the Specialty Training Administrator will arrange for you to attend an Out of Sync Induction at the Education Centre.  You must attend a drop in BLS Session with the Resus team in your first week starting at the Trust – this is a Trust requirement. Information on the times of the drop in sessions will be given to you at your Induction.
