NHS Education for Scotland invites you to the East regional event for Healthcare Support Workers working in all health and social care sectors in the East regions, this includes Lothian, Borders and Fife. A limited number of places may be available to those outwith these regions.

This is an opportunity to find out more about learning and development for you, for supporting your colleagues and the service you work in.

Priority will be given to staff at Bands 2-4 who work in the following job families:

• Estates & Facilities
• Business & Administration
• Clinical Healthcare Support Workers (Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Professions)

There are a limited number of spaces for Estates & Facilities and Business & Administration supervisors and managers to find out how to support your team’s learning and development.

What Will You Learn?
We are developing a varied event programme which will include keynote speakers, workshops, exhibitors, time to network with colleagues and opportunities to learn and reflect on your learning. By the end of the event you will be more aware of how your learning and development can help in delivering safe, effective, patient-centred care.


Key Dates
We recommend you discuss this opportunity as soon as possible with your manager / supervisor.  Our events for Healthcare Support Workers are very popular – please book early.
