Induction Main Page

The tabs below will take you to information that will prepare you for your new role in your new working environment. Before you start on the essential learning, it is important that you have completed all your Statutory and Mandatory training on LearnPro (click on the tab below).  The essential learning content will take 15 hours in total to complete.There are also links to more information about other services you might use for your patients or for your own personal development.    

To show your Senior Charge Nurse (SCN), Senior Charge Midwife (SCM), or Team Lead that you have completed this online induction you must print off and sign the completion checklist in the link below. If you are not able to print then ask a colleague to help. If your post is solely with the NHSGGC Staff Bank you are required to send a signed copy of the completion checklist to [email protected]   

As you heard in the welcome video a key part of your role as a HCSW is to work safely and support the delivery of high quality patient care or services. Each HCSW is expected to meet the NHS Scotland HCSW Mandatory Induction Standards and HCSW Code of Conduct after 3 months in post.

If your post is solely with the NHSGGC Staff Bank you are required to sign your Code of Conduct before you start and you have 6 months to complete the NHS Scotland HCSW Mandatory Induction Standards. 

You will be asked to work through this Workbookwhich offers you guidance and suggests examples of evidence that will show how you have met the required standards. It provides a great place to store all your learning from induction and the activities you have undertaken in your first weeks in NHSGGC.
