We have achieved a gold award for our standards in healthcare education.
We have been awarded the gold standard from Health Education North West (HENW), for our standards of placement provision and experience for all of our healthcare learners.
In an annual assessment carried out by HENW we scored 98% for our learning environment, that’s the highest score in the region. The average score in the North West is 93%.
The programme is led by our Practice Education Facilitators, who provide support to students undergoing training, as well as their mentors and supervisors.
Karen Swindley, Workforce and Education Director at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, said: “We are thrilled to have been granted this level of award, which is the culmination of a lot of hard work to ensure that students are welcomed into the organisation, feel supported and most importantly are being assessed by enthusiastic and high quality mentors. This is generating a skilled workforce for the future, who will provide care excellent care with compassion for our patients”.
