As most of you will know, on the NHS Graduate Management Training Scheme we spend two years rotating around the NHS and occasionally external organisations. As some of you may know, graduates are sometimes placed in arms-length bodies (ALBs) rather than trusts or CCGs. My first placement has been spent doing policy and strategy work in the Patient Safety team at NHS England & Improvement. I recently wrote an article for my Directorate newsletter summing up my time here, and thought I’d sh...

Intro Where has all the time gone?! The last time I blinked I was at the Welcome event in Leeds in September 2018 and now, as the title suggests, I am nearing the end of my first placement.

Hi everyone,This is a very odd blog for me to write, as it is my first since I left the scheme. In my two years as a HR trainee I have done so much, and changed as both a person and a professional. I have led on employee relations investigations, and spoke at conferences. I have run meetings with Chief Executives in attendance and designed Trust wide employability schemes. Alongside this I have made more mistakes than I can count, and several that were major enough to keep me up at night. I h...
