Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust has been shortlisted in the HSJ Awards workforce category


Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust recruits and trains 200 apprentices a year as a means of ensuring an engaged and competent workforce. The programme, which has been shortlisted for the HSJ Awards workforce category, is run in-house, in partnership with an external provider, in an innovative example of joint delivery with the private sector. The success of the programme means that the Trust has a home-grown, committed, flexible clinical support worker team.

The Trust is providing a route into training via the apprenticeship programme, but it has also taken people on who were struggling with long-term unemployment. It has increased flexibility as there are more people to carry-out basic tasks, therefore releasing more senior staff to concentrate on other areas of work as the service demands.

Congratulations on being shortlisted and good luck at the Awards Ceremony.
