£3m. on training money well spent – HSSD
Monday 25th February 2013, 8:30AM GMT.
HEALTH and Social Services spent almost £3m. last year on training its staff, it has emerged.
The department’s 2012 budget for the Institute of Health and Social Care Studies was £2.9m. – £500,000 more than it spent in 2011.
But the department said the institute was financially viable.
HSSD was heavily criticised after it announced it had overspent its budget by £2.5m. in 2012.
‘The institute is cost effective to run, it also provides learning opportunities for the independent health and social care sector, and in this way is able to generate income for the HSSD,’ said a department spokesman.
