Healthcare is a diverse environment with staff of varying professions, experiences, talents, backgrounds, and age. With an ageing population and evolving healthcare landscape, it is imperative for healthcare employers to continuously enhance the employability and sustainability of the workforce, and for staff to stay relevant in their skillsets to care for patients.
Since 2018, Cardiac Clinics has embarked on a job redesign and upskill programme for our ancillary staff. Five of the programme’s first batch of proud graduands were featured in CardioConnect and our social media platforms to better recognise their efforts. If you missed the article, click here to check out their stories.
Into the fifth year of the programme, Irene Teo, Executive from Cardiac Clinics shared that 32 staff, comprising Patient Services Associates, Patient Services Assistants and Health Care Assistants, have completed training, and are now empowered to perform cross-functional roles. “Through the programme, we have been able to identify staff with higher potential of learning and offer them training in more areas to further expand their skillsets,” shared Teeu Keng San, Assistant Director, Cardiac Clinics.
We shine the spotlight on six of our newly trained colleagues.
