Our Healthcare Assistants (HCAs) are valued members of our multi-disciplinary teams here at Kingston Hospital. Thanks to feedback and insight from staff across the Trust, we have created a new programme offering development opportunities and support to all our Band 2 Healthcare Assistants.
The ICARE programme offers:
- A ‘buddy’ to provide 1:1 support and guidance through the first two weeks in their allocated ward or department
- An 18-month pathway to develop skills and support staff in progressing to Band 3 positions
- Monthly open forums to share ideas, education and training
- Access to a dedicated Wellbeing Chaplain, offering support, a listening ear and providing the opportunity for confidential conversations at any time
