    its really sad to read the above - a 3 month wait for an OT assessment; i'm guessing this must be the OT from social services; as for the community OT teams there should not be more than a 2-3 week wait for priority 2 referals...its really sad and its reason why i get so frustrated working for the nhs...

    i have to say that we have been completing online stat mand training and other skills based study at my trust for the past 2 years;most staff complete the training at home not at work as it is difficult to find time during the working day to complete this; i love the way the articles states:

    Vanessa Lockyer-Stevens, principal educator at the trust’s faculty of nursing and midwifery, said she estimated the system would free up 65,000 hours per year for “hands on patient care

    i would love to see how she worked this out; what assurance do you have that staff have even understood the training and if they complete this themselves as most staff tend to complete this at home; in any case having done this training; you don have to really read the or listen to the programme, you can let it run and if you fail the test at the end you can redo it until you pass;
