Training, continuous professional development and induction
Our human resource strategy and best management practices mean that we have comprehensive programmes for induction, training and continuous professional development. This is an integral part of our quality policy at General Healthcare Group (GHG).
Our induction programme covers:
Our overall business structure, values, policies and procedures
Individual unit health and safety, risk management, quality and operational requirements
Individual job responsibilities, reporting, training, standards and regulatory requirements
We include clear briefing on disciplinary criteria and procedures that are rigorously implemented in the interests of best quality health care delivery.
Training and continuous development programmes
Training and continuous professional development programmes are tailored to each individual's needs, qualifications, professional registrations and role within the organisation.
These programmes and their outcomes are assessed as part of personal appraisals, integrated with plans for other team members and continuously updated in line with changes in best practice, standards and regulation.
Each employee is responsible for maintaining their own annual documented personal development plan. Copies are held by both the employee and their line manager.
These plans are an integral part of our annual staff performance appraisals.
