Training & Development for Heanton Nurses (RGN/RMN/Staff Nurse):

In 2015, we received clear feedback from our team that eLearning alone did not equip them with the skills to support the people that choose to live with us; eLearning did not equip them for the emotional challenges that they would face on a daily basis.

So, we began to develop our own in-house learning and development programme. That programme is now in its fourth year and has seen the wellbeing of both family members and team members increase exponentially. Our training is for all team members across all grades, all departments, all age groups and all genders.
