IT & Equipment



Smartcards will be issued on the second day of Trust induction; Smartcards are issued only to staff who require access to patient records or specific internal systems. If you already possess a Smartcard from a previous Trust please bring it with you to the first day of induction. Access will be applied to Smartcards upon successful completion of specific system training.
