Mandatory Induction Standards

Mandatory Induction Standards

Mandatory Induction Standards are designed to help new staff in NHSScotland work safely and to a high standard

All staff joining NHSScotland are expected to meet high standards. New staff will learn what is expected, and be supported during induction to the job using Mandatory Induction Standards.

There are currently 14 Standards to be worked through in the first 3-6 months of employment in a new role.  The standards have been developed and implemented by the Scottish Government to ensure patients and the public are protected from harm.  The Mandatory Induction Standards  support induction and safe practice and are an important first step in a new Healthcare Support Worker learning.
