Messages for loved ones and keeping in touch

During your stay in hospital you will meet a number of different members of staff.  All members of staff wear name badges, but if you are not sure who someone is or what they do, please feel free to ask them to introduce themselves and explain what they do. 

If you have any questions about your treatment, please ask a doctor or a nurse.

There are lots of opportunities for you to get involved with the Trust, from volunteering to attending our public meetings, our Annual General Meeting or our hospital open day which is held every year.

New ways to learn

You asked for more flexibility in the way you learn IT systems and we listened. We have now more ways for you to learn than ever before. IT Training offer a wide variety of clinical and desktop courses, many of these courses are available in a choice of learning styles.

The following learning options are offered:
◦Classroom (Tutor-Led)
Traditional classroom training is available for the following courses; PAS courses and other clinical systems such as Choose and Book, EPRO and PACS. Students will benefit from small sized class groups, hands on practice and support from their tutor.
◦Workshop Study
IT Training regularly host Workshops in which students are able to book a computer for between an hour and a whole day at a time. Currently within the workshops students are able to study a number of courses, ranging from PAS courses and other clinical systems through to Basic, Core and Expert Desktop courses.
◦E-Learning
E-Learning is offered as an option for some of the shorter courses to maximise the use of time. E-Learning can be completed in the workplace or at home. Seats in the workshops are also able to be reserved for students wishing to complete e-learning with tutor support.
◦Workplace Learning
Workplace learning is available upon request for individuals on a 1 to 1 basis or small groups - though a suitable learning environment must be provided. Workplace learning is ideal for those who have special training requirements and often allows the trainer to customise course content to suit individual training needs.

Offering courses in multiple learning options allows IT Training to be flexible, whilst still delivering the highest standard of training. The aim is to give the learner the best possible learning experience.
