All Trainees within the Mersey Foundation School use the NHS Education Scotland (NES) e-portfolio.

The e-portfolio allows a simple way to collate assessments, document meetings, record a development plan and demonstrate curriculum requirements have been met.

The Mersey Foundation School will also use the e-portfolio messaging system as the means for all communications should we advise that you check this on a regular basis.

Each trust has a named contact for e-portfolio. There is also a Mersey Foundation School e-portfolio user group which meets quarterly to discuss e-portfolio issues.

The Mersey Foundation School also has representation at the national e-portfolio meetings.

The UKFPO website has more information on getting the most out of your e-portfolio.

E-Learning for Health Care

Web Induction

Mersey has implemented a HEE wide Web-Based Induction Package containing 10 generic modules. These are:

Duties, Risks and Pressures
Hazardous Substances
Infection Control
Manual Handling
Patient ID
Safeguarding Children
Safeguarding Adults
Slips, Trips and Falls
The Principles of Good Documentation

All trainees within the Mersey are required to complete the 10 generic modules as part of their Trust Induction Programme but some Trusts have chosen to add additional modules, tailored to their own requirements. The individual trainee’s progress can be monitored via the Trust Administrator and when the trainee rotates, the information is passed on to the next Trust as an ‘Induction Passport’. This not only reduces duplication of mandatory training but also replaces the need for some face-to-face sessions, saving time.

Any problems or queries about the Web Induction Package should, in the first instance, be directed to the Trust Administrator.


HEE North West Mersey produces a newsletter on a quarterly basis that is available to all trainees. Mersey Deanery Foundation School contributes to these newsletters and will welcome any messages that trainees wish to circulate.
