Don’t forget you can now upload anything you want to METIS.  If you experience difficulties uploading scanned documents it is usually because of your scanner settings, reduce the size it scans and all should be well.  Try to PDF any uploads and this too reduces the size.  If you experience any problems using METIS then please call us on 0161 720 2905/4872

Pastoral Care

Core Skills

All Mandatory training is now completed via the Deanery E Learning modules and is recorded on a core skills register which will hopefully eliminate the need to repeat certain topics every six months. Some training such as Breakaway/CPR will be provided by host trusts. Core skills is managed by the Postgraduate Dept of Psychiatry on behalf of all MH Trusts so that all trainees should have completed prior to arriving.  We will provide regular reports re compliance.
