If we are to achieve our vision, we need to attract and retain the best possible workforce to support us.

Across NHS Informatics Merseyside great emphasis is placed on personal and professional development to create an environment which fosters innovation, is supportive and conducive to learning and helps to maintain high standards of customer care.

We recognise that when our people are engaged, well trained, well led and supported, we are more efficient and deliver excellent service.

As such, we are committed to the training and development of our colleagues and work proactively to support their health and wellbeing through a range of workplace policies and initiatives.

Through this approach, we seek to maintain a pipeline of talent who embrace our vision and values, and are well placed to lead our organisation. Our success in achieving this has been recognised, with:

  • Year-on-year improvements in our NHS staff survey results and completion rates, with NHS Informatics Merseyside scoring a highly staff engagement.
  • The achievement of ‘Excellence in Informatics' accreditation from the Informatics Skills Development (ISD) Network for consistent good practice in informatics workforce development.
  • Success in being awarded 'Staff development of the year' over three consecutive years (2014, 2015, 2016) through the Informatics Skills Development (ISD) Network.
