Two primary care trusts awarded teaching status


Manchester and Bolton primary care trusts have both been awarded teaching status by the Department of Health.

The award recognises the good work of the organisations in learning and development, including support for education, research, training and all aspects of staff development, as well as strong partnerships that have been established with educational establishments.

Once a trust achieves teaching status, the hope is that it will be able to recruit excellent staff attracted by an organisation with a commitment to staff development. The status should also ensure that the trust is seen as an employer who will teach staff and help them develop their careers.

The teaching status will help both trusts to collaborate with the network of teaching primary care trusts throughout the country and develop resources and education programmes, as well as develop even stronger links with teaching establishments.

Bolton chief executive Tim Evans said: “The achievements and successes of this organisation would not have been possible without our commitment to learning, teaching and research. Teaching status is about the way Bolton helps its staff develop and how those staff support each other to develop the high-quality, evidence-based services that flow from having well-trained staff.”

Manchester chief executive Laura Roberts said: “Manchester has worked hard to be awarded this status. We look forward to continue to help staff learn and develop, not only benefiting themselves but our patients as well. I’m delighted that this commitment has been recognised at a national and regional level both for Manchester as well as Bolton. “
