NHS Wales commissions online cyber training

NHS Wales has procured a round of cyber awareness training for 50,000 employees including hospital staff, GPs, pharmacists and contractors.

It is the first national NHS organisation to roll out dual language cyber awareness training and e-learning at such a scale. The material will be loaded onto its national training platforms, Electronic Staff Record Learning Management System and the Learning@Wales Moodle platform.
