Education & Workforce Development

The Education and Workforce Development Service is part of the Human Resources Directorate. Working in partnership with key stakeholders we aim to ensure we have the right staff, with the right skills, knowledge and behaviour to deliver high quality, safe and compassionate care to our patients. We support the Trust’s workforce objective which is “to be the preferred NHS employer, and to recruit, develop and retain a quality, flexible workforce capable of delivering healthcare at its very best with a personal touch”.
