Further information on Mandatory Training

Trainees must complete online training in Health and Safety and Equality and Diversity.  At least two weeks prior to commencing GP Practice, Trainees are emailed login details to access the Skills for Health site to complete this mandatory training.  Both of these modules must be completed and we ask Trainees to complete them within the first two days in Practice.  Practice Managers/Educational Supervisors should ensure that time is set aside for this; each module should take roughly 1 -2 hours.
