Training and Development

We provide learning and development opportunities for all staff both professionally and personally. We recognise that continuing professional development and life-long learning are key to delivering high-quality patient care.

Elective Placements

An elective can provide an insight into a specialist area not offered by your course. It can help you gain extra experience/skills for your CV, for example, organising your own placement can demonstrate proactivity, planning or negotiation skills, making sure you develop useful employability skills during the placement itself, for example problem solving, flexibility and resourcefulness.

Mildmay is at the forefront of social work training and education

Mildmay’s social work team, headed up by Lead Social Worker, Beverly Nelson, supports vulnerable patients within our hospital. It offers patients wrap-around care that is respectful, inclusive, and considerate of all care and support needs. Mildmay’s social work team works with patients, their carers, family, and advocate to promote collaborative working, anti-oppressive and anti-discriminative practices.

Equality and diversity

We are committed to equality and diversity and believe that celebrating the diversity of our staff is essential to our success and enables us to meet the diverse needs of our patients, the communities we serve and our staff.
