Why Practice managers need a staff training strategy
Statutory and mandatory training – is there a difference?
At first glance statutory training and mandatory training appear to be the same. But they are slightly different in what they focus on. While both are compulsory, statutory training is usually required by law, or where a statutory body has instructed an organisation to provide training based on specific legislation. Examples might be Health and Safety at Work Act training, or Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) training.
Mandatory training, on the other hand, is considered essential for the safe and efficient delivery of services. This type of training includes (but is not limited to) Chaperone training, Complaints handling, Safeguarding, Infection Control, Raising Concerns and whistleblowing training.
