The NHS Scotland Academy will work with the Scottish Government and partners to support the National Treatment Centres Programme (NTC) through accelerated workforce development. It is estimated that an additional 1,500 roles will be delivered through this project, supporting workforce needs within NHSScotland and broader health and social care.
Foundations of Perioperative Practice
The first priority of the NTCs’ Accelerated Workforce Programme is offering accelerated education and training through a hub and spoke approach to Band 5 Registered scrub nurses and recovery practitioners.
This programme has been developed following the success of the NHS Golden Jubilee peri-operative training programme. Formed of pre-operative, peri-operative and post-operative subjects, learners will complete a post-graduate programme through formal teaching.
