This document sets out the guidelines for induction procedures for newly appointed staff across the Trust.



This document will ensure that there is a process whereby the induction procedure is consistent for all members of staff across the Trust. This policy will ensure that the Trust meets all its legal responsibilities and provide a clear Trust -wide approach to induction. This will enable a record to be held as evidence that all members of staff have attended an induction programme prior to commencing work in their department.

This policy and procedure applies to all new staff within Ashford and St Peters Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. This includes all employees, including those on fixed term contracts, rotation, locum/temporary staff (this includes staff on secondment) and healthroster bank staff.
