We believe DHU is a great organisation to work for. We strive for excellence and have a proven commitment to training and developing staff. Across all our staff groups, whether clinical or non-clinical. we ensure that company-funded training is targeted at the skills that the company needs now and in the future.
DHU provides opportunity for all our staff to progress within the organisation. Within the DHU staff appraisal process, individual objectives and targets are set which are both related to the Company’s corporate objectives & values, and individual training & development needs that are identified. The overall aim of this scheme is to maximise individual employee effectiveness and potential.
Successful delivery of our range of services is dependent on having a motivated and skilled staff and we continue to review the skills mix in the company through the active recruitment of appropriate and diverse staff.
Programmes of targeted clinical training have been developed to ensure ongoing professional development so that clinical staff are up to date with recent developments including the Unwell Child, NICE guidelines, mental health and responding to learning outcomes from complaints and incidents.
As an organisation that operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week we are able to offer our staff flexibility in their working patterns. We recognise the need for a work/life balance and the importance of this on the health and wellbeing of our people.
