Training & NICE guideline reviewers

DICE Healthcare Directors and management team have more than a century of nursing and home care experience between them enabling our clients to benefit from our considerable clinical and home care knowledge which in turn means we have a thorough understanding of the needs of our clients. Our care plans are built around the needs of the individual client with involvement from them and/or their loved ones.

We are committed to finding, training and retaining the right staff to deliver the high standards we expect. The Directors are experienced trainers in the own right and have extensive experience training nursing students, qualified nurses and care assistants for other companies. We do all our own in-house training but can draw on experts in the field for specialist training such as caring for clients with dementia due to our ‘connections’. By passing on some of our clinical knowledge all the training our staff receive is evidence based and up to date allowing us to drive up standards of care. The scope and level of training far exceeds the national requirements and standards with all staff having five days induction and shadowing experience before they are allowed to work with clients on their own. We have our own simulation suite that replicates a bedroom so carers can work in a safe, supportive environment whilst developing their skills such as manual handling. We also have a life sized multi functional mannequin to practice healthcare tasks on such as stoma or catheter care.

We work closely with local organisations to ensure we are involved in innovation and developments. We have recently been approached by the CCG to deliver training sessions on their behalf to personal assistants working in the community.

DICE Healthcare Ltd is currently approved as a National Institute for Health and Care Excellence reviewer. This means when new National Guidelines are being developed we can offer comments and suggestions to ensure care in the client’s own home is considered.
