Statutory and mandatory training is essential in ensuring everyone is able to work safely within our hospitals, and gives us the skills we need to help protect the health and well being of others - whether that's in case of a fire or a child protection issue.
It is your responsibility to ensure you are up to date with your training, required of your role. As employees under the SEAT scheme you are therefore trust employees and need to complete our Statutory and Mandatory training. This is true for those working in a GP Practice too.
All of our statutory and mandatory training records are stored on a system called WIRED. In addition to individual training records, WIRED also offers team and directorate compliance. All reports can be downloaded into Excel if required.
Please note: WIRED works best using Internet Explorer (IE). To view WIRED in IE, please click on the Portal Manager icon on the desktop of your computer, then click on WIRED.
You can check your own record by following the steps below:
Click on ‘Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust’
Click on ‘consolidated view’
Click on ‘employee’
In the employee drop down box scroll to find you name and click
Click on ‘view report’ and see your training record.

Statutory and mandatory training for those in a GP or Surrey and Boarders Partnership post
As employees under the SEAT scheme you are therefore trust employees and need to complete our Statutory and Mandatory training. This is true for those working in a GP Practice too.
Those working at a GP practice for their ST3 training year can use the statutory training completed at their practice to evidence this. You do not need to repeat training for the same topic for both organisations. You may simply send your certificates to the relevant contacts below; they will validate your training and add it to your WIRED account.

All trainees need to be made aware of the updated requirements for child and adult safeguarding.
In summary, trainees need to provide evidence of the knowledge components of child and adult safeguarding early in each training level i.e. ST1, ST2 and ST3 as well as a reflective log entry on both child and adult safeguarding within each training level.
For trainees who are having ARCP panels in or after June 2020 then the new requirements need to have been completed and visible in the trainee’s ePortfolio. For trainees having ARCP panels prior to June 2020 then the child safeguarding mandatory requirements remain as they are, and trainees should be encouraged to complete the adult safeguarding requirements but should not be given an Outcome 5 if this is missing.
Changes for evidence of safeguarding activity
The GP curriculum states that all GPs should be competent in dealing with safeguarding. This includes: recognising abuse, knowing about local arrangements for safeguarding, referring effectively and playing a part in assessment and continuing management including prevention of further abuse. GP trainees need to satisfy the GMC and the public that they have the appropriate knowledge, clinical skills and understanding of safeguarding to be able to apply these skills when they arise.
Safeguarding training is an integral and ongoing part of both GP training and professional development as a qualified GP.
All trainees require a knowledge update, which includes adult and child safeguarding at the start or early part of each training year, i.e. ST1, ST2 and ST3. This includes key safeguarding information and appropriate action to take if there are any concerns. This evidence must be documented in the trainee’s e-Portfolio. In addition, all trainees require a minimum of one participatory piece of learning and reflection for both adult and child safeguarding in each training year.
Trainees need Level 3 training in both child and adult safeguarding.
At the start of the training programme in the trainee’s first post in ST1 all trainees need to receive training on both child and adult safeguarding and have the knowledge of the appropriate action to take if there are any concerns. This can be done through local training or online resources and documented by the trainee in their e-Portfolio.
This learning then needs to be applied throughout training. Information on both child and adult safeguarding needs to be documented within the trainee’s ePortfolio within each training year and made available to the ARCP panels.
It is recommended that demonstration of on-going learning come from participatory and non–participatory training activities.
Attending face to face training
Group case discussion
Reflection on the learning from a case the professional has been involved in and how this applied to their practice
Attendance at safeguarding practice meetings
Demonstrating how learning gained from reading the RCGP Child Safeguarding and Adult Safeguarding toolkits has been applied to clinical practice
Reading the RCGP Child Safeguarding and Adult Safeguarding toolkits
Relevant safeguarding guidelines of journal articles
Both participatory and non-participatory learning which supports safeguarding needs to be linked in the e-Portfolio to the clinical experience group, ‘People with health disadvantages and vulnerabilities.
All trainees require a knowledge update, which includes adult and child safeguarding at the start or early part of each training year, i.e. ST1, ST2 and ST3. This includes key safeguarding information and appropriate action to take if there are any concerns. This evidence must be documented in the trainee’s ePortfolio.
All trainees require a minimum of one participatory piece of learning and reflection for both adult and child safeguarding in each training year. This needs to be added into the ePortfolio during the training year and not just before the trainee’s ESR.
As with all areas of the curriculum the ES will be asked if the trainee is competent in safeguarding in their final review. However, if in any post the supervisor has concerns about the trainee, they will need close supervision and support when dealing with cases that may have safeguarding implications.
The Intercollegiate Documents (ICDs) and RCGP supplementary guidance on safeguarding
Nationally recognised frameworks have been designed to guide all health professionals and their teams to identify the competencies they need in order to safeguard children and adults. These include:
Safeguarding Children and Young People: Roles and Competencies for Healthcare Staff, fourth edition: January 2019
Adult Safeguarding: Roles and Competencies for Health Care Staff, first edition: August 2018
The ICDs and the RCGP supplementary guide refer to a minimum number of hours required for safeguarding training. GP trainees are not expected to reference ‘number of hours’ within their learning log. If a trainee demonstrates within each training year a range of participatory and non-participatory learning in both child and adult safeguarding as documented above, this will be considered equivalent.
