Demand Time Out for Training!

  • Comment
What NT is doing to push for protected time and money for post-registration nurse training - and how you can help

NT has written to almost 500 NHS chief executives, asking them to support Time Out For Training.

We have asked them to pledge to:

  • ensure their nurses receive adequate levels of mandatory and non-mandatory post-registration education and training;

  • commit to providing sufficient backfill for their nurses to undertake education and training;

  • use their influence to pressure their SHA into spending their entire multi-professional education and training budget on training and education.

And we want you to write to your trust too, to encourage them to support the pledges and TOFT.

Click here to download a letter which asks for your chief executive's support and for them to reply in writing, with an explanation if they feel their commitment is not possible.

A list of trusts supporting TOFT will be added to this site.

If you receive an unsatisfactory reply from your trust please email
