The needs of our population are changing and there is a move towards support and treatment outside of the acute setting. This move has led to more complex, acute care being provided in the community. To support learners development in the world of modern nursing, placement opportunities need to reflect these changes and better prepare the nursing teams of the future. As well as the traditional hospital settings, we utilise and a range of community placements, beyond the NHS teams. These include collaboration with our community partners in primary care- general practice, care homes with nursing care, hospices, and our locality prison.
On this page you will find resources that have been prepared to support student preparation for placements in prison, general practice and care homes. All of these include a range of other key links that you may find useful.
