National Training Number (NTN)

NES Healthcare Science monitors workplace training via training centre recognition, trainer/ supervisor recognition, and progression monitoring of individual Healthcare Scientist trainees. More information about our quality monitoring can be found on our dedicated Quality Monitoring page, accessed using the link on the left-hand side of the page.

By obtaining a NTN, you will be joining the Healthcare Science community who participate in these quality monitoring processes to satisfy NES, HCPC and Education and Training standard requirements.

Obtaining a National Training Number

To obtain a NTN you will:

  • Be training in a Healthcare Science post in a department that has undergone NES self-assessment
  • Have a clear and agreed training plan
  • Have a training supervisor
  • Perform an annual review of progression (ARCP)
  • Agree to participate in NES surveys and respond to requests for information
  • Notify the team for any changes to your details such as completion of training, change of training location etc.

Next Steps

Please complete the online form, available on MS Forms, to send your request to the NES team. One of the Principal Leads will issue your National Training Number and this will be recorded in Turas Programme Management. You will receive an email letting you know your NTN and officially welcoming you to your training position.
