relation to ensuring all staff receive the appropriate level of mandatory
training as required for their post during 2008. The Learning and
Development team have undertaken a huge piece of work to ensure
the Trust is meeting the requirements under the Standards for Better
Health. The data is now kept on the Trust’s Oracle Learning
Management system (part of ESR). Continued development of the
system is planned for 2009 with a view to enabling managers to utilise
the benefits of Manager Self Service further in relation to being able to
run local reports on mandatory training compliance.
2.6 Employee Relations activity – Appendix Eight shows the

of disciplinary cases. These numbers are kept under close review by
the HR Manager covering Medirest who works closely with Medirest
managers to ensure appropriate application of the Trust policies.
