“The Elsies”

The Elsie Inglis Staff Development Awards

Programme Details

The Elsie Inglis Development Award, often called the Elsies, is a charitable fund which seeks to support individual NHS Lothian staff to develop their potential through learning.

We provide limited grant support to enable staff to take part in a training course, gain a qualification or attend a conference or seminar. It does not cover travel, subsistence or resources such as books or course materials.

The ‘Workforce Development Team’ manage and distribute the fund equitably by assessing applications, as well as creating innovative development opportunities for a wide and diverse range of staff.

The individual award is limited to a maximum of £250 (individual) and £500 (group) per application over a 24 month period.

Development opportunities must be paid for within 4 weeks of receiving an award. However, development opportunities can be undertaken later in the same financial year.

To apply for The Elsie Inglis Staff Development Award, please complete an application form.
