Contrary to popular belief primary care can be a first career destination for healthcare professionals and provides invaluable skills, education and learning opportunities to progress your career.

Apprenticeships

Placements

The Training Hub supports students and HEIs within the region to allocate placements and also arrange shadowing opportunities in Primary Care in the county. In the sidebar there are two forms to register an interest in placements both for practices and for individual students.

“I’ve just completed my three days observation of practice nursing.  I really enjoyed it. It was so helpful and arranged a very varied three days, observing general appointments and time with the diabetic, family planning and asthma/COPD specialist nurses, and a baby immunisation clinic.

I liked the huge variety of work that practice nurses do, and the autonomy but with the support of a great team. Practice nursing is definitely top of my list of career options after this experience.

Thank you again for arranging this opportunity.”
