Management Training Scheme (MTS)

Graduate trainees

Trainee: Genna Dall

TYPE: Finance


Before the NHS management scheme:

  • Graduated with degree in podiatry
  • Worked in NHS and privately in podiatry for four years
  • Had one-year secondment to the Scottish Executive Health Department as part of the national Agenda for Change team

After joining the scheme:

"I enjoyed working for the NHS but was looking for a role with more influence over the way services are delivered. The scheme certainly afforded me this opportunity."

"In my second placement, I managed an orthopaedic outpatient department, working with administration and clerical, nursing and consultants, to make sure the service ran smoothly and efficiently."

"An event I organised to look at improving services for patients and meeting challenging waiting times resulted in an action plan developed by staff to take forward ideas for change."

"It's one example of the real difference you can make during your time as a management trainee.
