NHS Ayrshire & Aran are one of 14 regional NHS Boards responsible for the protection and the improvement of their population’s health and for the delivery of frontline healthcare services.
More than 9,000 staff work in their hospitals – two University Hospitals at Ayr and Crosshouse near Kilmarnock, Ayrshire Central Hospital in Irvine and Biggart Hospital in Prestwick. NHS Ayrshire & Arran also have community hospitals in Arran (War Memorial Hospital), Cumbrae (Lady Margaret), Cumnock (East Ayrshire Community Hospital), Girvan (Girvan Community Hospital) and Kirklandside.
They are committed to providing the highest standards of patient care to the people of Ayrshire and Arran, meaning they’re also committed to ensuring their staff have the most up to date qualifications through their vocational qualification programme and work based competency programmes.
Up until last month, all programme candidates were using paper based portfolios which is extremely time consuming from an administrative viewpoint and also costly in terms of paper and delivery. With candidates being spread throughout North Ayrshire (including Arran) arranging times to meet was becoming a challenge in itself, so they decided to go to market and look for a more effective and accessible way to deliver their programme.
NHS Ayrshire & Arran selected Proof Positive as their EPortfolio provider, meaning that all candidates and Assessors now have access to:
“Getting set up after initial contact was very easy. Our Customer Success Manager, Debra Hicks, kept in contact throughout & was able to answer all questions we had. After our training our awards were set up quickly and we’re now live on Proof Positive and ready to start delivering. Support has been exceptional and we look forward to working alongside Proof Positive as we bring our programme online and roll it out to our candidates.” Billy Gibson, NHS Ayrshire & Aran
Proof Positive is an intuitive online e-portfolio system for managing competence-based qualifications. It’s user focused, tried and tested and simple to use, with full training and support included from a dedicated Proof Positive Customer Success Executive.
