NHS Education for Scotland invites you to the West regional event for Healthcare Support Workers working in all health and social care sectors in the West regions, this includes Ayrshire and Arran, Dumfries and Galloway, Forth Valley, Greater Glasgow and Clyde, the NHS Golden Jubilee National Hospital, Lanarkshire, Western Isles (Eileanan Siar) and The State Hospital Board for Scotland. 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 to 4 who work in the following job families:

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

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

We are developing a varied event programme which will include keynote speakers, workshops, exhibitors, time to network with colleagues and opportunities to identify and discuss planning and recording learning, leadership and mentoring at all levels.


Delegates will be more aware of:

  • How to plan and record learning
  • Supporting learning in the workplace
  • How to have meaningful PDPR discussions
  • The value of learning and the contribution it makes to safe, effective, person-centred care


Supporting your staff to attend the HCSW Regional Event can help with:

  • Keeping up to date with resources to support learning and service improvement
  • HCSWs feeling valued and recognised for their contribution to NHSScotland
  • Making choices about learning to support skills and career development


If you are a supervisor / manager in Estates and Facilities or Business and Administration, by the end of the event you will be more aware of:

  • How to support staff in their learning and career development, including succession planning
  • How to create a learning environment in the workplace

Please share this information with other supervisors / managers who may be interested in attending.
