In addition to the programme of learning opportunities
available, annual performance and development appraisal is mandated
for all of our staff.
Trust recognises that appraisal is a key part of both
personal and organisational development.
Appraisal provides an opportunity to reflect back over a period
of time, on all aspects of the job, to determine the areas in which
you feel you have performed well, where you have encountered
problems, why this may be the case and the measures you could take
to improve your future performance and develop personally.
The process benefits everyone in the Trust
'Every aspect of my emergency care was dealt with quickly,
efficiently and professionally with full explanations and
compassion from all staff involved'.
