New centre for excellence to open in Sheffield

Sheffield Teaching Hospitals is to host a new excellence centre for South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw which will provide top quality training for healthcare support staff.

The South Yorkshire Regional Excellence Centre will be part of the National Skills Academy for Health network, and one of only ten in the country. It will focus on vocational training for both clinical and non-clinical staff who support the delivery of healthcare.

Excellence Centres act as regional hubs to develop strong collaborations between education, training and healthcare providers.
