Lothian and Borders

NHS Lothian LogoNHS Borders Logo

The stroke training courses in Lothian are delivered in partnership with Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland and the NHS Lothian and have been running since 2001. The partnership extended to incorporate NHS Borders in 2006.

All courses are open to health professionals and social service staff employed within NHS Lothian. There will be allocated spaces on NHS Lothian stroke training courses for health and social care staff from the Borders. Please contact the Stroke Education Facilitator directly to discuss this further.

The courses have been designed as:

Each course and study day stands alone, the content having been carefully chosen to address the knowledge and skills required at that particular level.

The courses and study days aim to be:

  • Relevant to the workplace
  • Reflective of practice
  • Empowering and enabling
  • Challenging, but supportive and non judgmental
  • Confidence building

Specifically designed study days can be set up in order to address the learning needs of particular staff groups.

Who delivers the training?

The Stroke Education Facilitator alongside a team of trainers who all have specific interest and experience in stroke deliver the training.
