Developing our staff

After you have successfully completed the application and interview process, and have accepted an offer of employment with us, you will complete an induction relevant to your new role.

All staff must complete both a Corporate Induction and a Local Workplace Induction.

Corporate Induction Programme

Corporate Inductions happen twice a month (one at the Royal Lancaster Infirmary and one at Furness General Hospital). The programme is designed to provide an interactive and values based introduction to the Trust. Our new starters will be given an overview of our future strategy and their role within it.

Local Workplace Induction

All new starters should complete a Local Workplace Induction, this should commence on the first day within the ward/department and completed within a month from your start date. The Local Workplace Induction is designed to ensure that all new contracted staff are properly orientated to the organisation and are confident and competent to undertake their role.

Continued Development

Lifelong learning is important for everyone, whether this be supporting you in your current role or developing for future roles.

We have a dedicated Learning and Organisational Development team who are committed to providing first class learning opportunities to all UHMBT staff.

Key focus areas include:

  • Personal and Professional development
  • Core skills, mandatory and job essential training
  • Leadership and management development
  • Vocational training

Every member of staff has access to our in-house training system called TMS where a wide range of courses, workshops and e-learning can be booked. Plus, there are libraries on each hospital site where staff can freely access resources like computers, books and research papers to help with their professional or personal development.

We are also one of the NHS Trusts involved with the Listening into Action (LiA) programme. LiA is about empowering staff to make the changes they want to see within their own departments, and ultimately help them to actively contribute to the success of the organisation, in a way that makes them feel proud.
