Introduction and Training Induction

Split over four days various sessions will provide you with the following:

  • Some time towards completing the necessary mandatory Trust training
  • Additional clinical training
  • Additional mandatory IT system training
  • Practical guides to department working
  • Formal introductions to the individuals who will support you through your Foundation Programme

Corporate Induction is absolutely vital to patient safety and we take it very seriously at Blackpool. All new staff must receive the relevant mandatory Trust training, to ensure they are integrated into their team in a safe and efficient way.

Our programme allows the Trust to give assurance, and ensure compliance, with its statutory and regulatory obligations.  Plus, it meets the requirements set by HENW and the GMC regarding promoting excellence in standards for medical education and training.
