​​Pre-registration student nurse placements in primary care

At the moment there is no requirement for pre-registration student nurses to be placed in a GP setting during their training. If we are to address the current and future shortage of practice nurses then we need to offer our expertise to students and become training practices. 

We currently have six GP practices providing placements in Lambeth. Practice nurses who hold a mentor qualification and have attended an annual mentor update are ideally placed to be involved with supporting pre-registration student nurses.

Pre-registration students come from either LSBU or KCL on four or six week placements. There is a remuneration of £140/week for the practice provided half and half by the university and the CCG

If you are interested in supporting students to gain an understanding of primary care then please contact Louise Ashwood for further information at louise.ashwood@nhs.net
