Integra People introduces in-house training for healthcare division
Following the introduction of a healthcare division in November 2016, Integra People has appointed Lucy Faulkner as clinical training & assessment manager, and Jeannie Edwards as registered nurse.
Joining the existing healthcare department within the Warrington and Bangor offices, the two new roles have been developed to complement each other and help Integra People’s healthcare sector become not just a recruitment service but also a specialist training hub.
Edwards is based in Integra People’s Bangor office, and has joined the company to lead nurse recruitment, ensuring appropriate placement and bespoke, appropriate matching of candidates and clients.
Edwards said, “As the company’s registered nurse, I am passionate about continued professional development and ensuring agency nurses have access to relevant and beneficial training, helping to make them feel valued.
“Integra People recognise and value my high standards and passion for investing into nurses and recognising their value, not just financially.”
Faulkner is based in Integra People’s Warrington head office after her long term role as a clinical lead, and is an expert at educating large groups of healthcare assistants and nurses, meeting the standards set by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).
Integra People Healthcare will now offer in-house mandatory training and inductions, as well as specialist courses in areas such as tracheostomy and traumatic brain injuries, with the addition of a hoist and bed for a real life moving and handling and life support training experience.
Faulkner added, “We are thrilled to be able to ensure Integra are supplying healthcare assistants and nurses who far exceeded benchmark standards, which will create confidence in our brand, and the promise of excellent, dedicated staff.”
