Our Innovative Training & Support Programme for
International Doctors wins the Internal Learning Solution of
the Year Gold Award at the National Skills Academy’s Learning
Our International Tutor, Dr Sujesh Bansal, accepted the award from Claudia Winkleman, at the ceremony held at The Dorchester in London, on 5th February.
We competed against organisations such as Sainsbury’s, GlaxoSmithKline, Telephonica, Legal & General and LV to clinch the prize.
The Induction includes a bespoke online training programme for new international doctors to provide them with ‘enhanced’ information and knowledge on social, ethical, legal, professional and patient safety aspects of patient care and UK clinical practice. This ensures doctors receive appropriate training before they start work in the NHS and provide direct patient care. Last year, 36 international doctors completed the programme, and there is increasing interest in using the programme from other organisations and national bodies.
Congratulations to Sujesh and all the team who worked hard to make this project a success.
