Delivering excellent care requires us to have educated and empowered people at the heart of our business, and we seek to nurture them throughout their careers. We are a constantly growing organisation and we want to encourage new potential and see our employees grow with us. We achieve this through empowerment, education, training and diverse career opportunities.
Through d.ACADEMY our virtual university, we encourage our employees to grow their professional and personal skills. Our nurses, doctors, managers and patients have access to a variety of e-learning programmes; true knowledge-sharing, from experts for experts, innovative, and based on the results of landmark scientific research. d.ACADEMY also includes a digital library for personal development. And alongside such technology, we also know the importance of person-to-person support.
In addition to the e-learning sessions offered through d.ACADEMY, our staff have the opportunity to benefit from internal and external medical education and training activities organised locally. To ensure that knowledge is transferred into practice, every new clinic employee is assigned a mentor.
Our annual appraisal process ensures that all employees plan their development targets for the year ahead together with their manager. Leaders thus support career advances and help their teams to grow.
