Me first training for GOSH staff

We are thrilled that Great Ormond Street Hospital NHS Foundation Trust have funded 10 Me first masterclasses for GOSH clinical staff to be delivered from August to early November.  This is a one-day course for all levels of staff with all levels of experience including trainees and senior staff.  The places on these courses will be prioritised based on clinical area based on the evaluation of the training being undertaken by ORCHID.  Spaces will then be released to other staff 4 weeks prior to training.
