What our customers think
“Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust have been working with Nelson Training for 8 years and they have provided a range of training programmes for managers and staff across the Trust. Their drama based training has received excellent feedback from all disciplines of staff and the drama based style used makes the training both memorable, exciting and innovative.
We have also seen some specific improvements since the implementation of the “Being absence minded” training which is aimed at managers to develop their skills in managing staff absence and our sickness absence rate has reduced by 2%.
