Your learning and development

Induction programme

Everyone who joins our team benefits from our corporate induction programme. Here, you’ll learn about our values and how your role contributes to us delivering the best possible care to our patients and their families. You’ll have a number of statutory and mandatory training sessions as well as the opportunity to meet colleagues from across the organisation.


We use performance appraisals to review our employees' performance. The appraisal process also helps us to recognise what’s gone well and to create a plan for every employee’s development through additional training and increased responsibilities. Your appraisal can help you to identify where you want to be and how we can support you to get there.

Delivering care, improving care

When you come to work with us, we tell you that you have two jobs: to deliver care and to improve care. Whether you’re at the frontline of patient care or supporting us in a non-clinical role, you’ll be encouraged to share your ideas for improving your service.

Ongoing learning

We offer a range of opportunities to ensure that everyone is afforded the time to keep their skills and experiences up-to-date to stay at the forefront of developments in healthcare.

From a range of vocational courses, to work-based learning, degree and post-graduate qualifications, as well as bespoke CPD programmes, whether you are working on the frontline or in a corporate services function, we will support you achieve best practice in your field of expertise.

Mentoring is a powerful personal development and empowerment tool. It's an effective way of helping people to progress in their careers or address challenges.

We run in-house training courses in mentoring. This means as an NGH employee, you'll have opportunities to develop a mentor relationship to support you on your professional journey as well as support and training to become a mentor yourself when you feel ready.
