Recruitment and Retention Delivery Group

Function of the Recruitment and Retention Delivery Group (RRDG)

The Recruitment and Retention Delivery Group (RRDG) was established in early 2008 to support a programme of work to enhance practice in nursing and midwifery student recruitment, selection and retention across Scotland.

Aim

To support the achievement of the Delivery Group's objectives, short-life working groups (SLWGs) were established. You can find information about the work of these groups on the Recruitment, Selection and Retention Community Site:
 

Developed in partnership with key stakeholders, the range of the work and the structure and governance of the groups reflected both recognition of the complexity of the subject and the collective commitment of all agencies to support good practice in this area.

 

As part of a wider strategic shift of responsibilities, SGHD has established the transfer of responsibility for the performance management of pre-registration nursing and midwifery programmes to NHS Education for Scotland (NES) and, given NES' clear and established educational development and support remit and their close involvement across the wider workstream, it was agreed that the Recruitment and Retention programme would transfer to NES from April 2010. This transfer, along with the associated funding, will support greater integration with existing workstreams, provide additional infrastructure and support longer-term sustainability.

 

From April 2011, the Recruitment & Selection SLWG and Retention SLWG merged to form the N&M Recruitment, Selection and Retention group.
