Insight to Primary Care Placements – a new innovative pre-registration placement!

The Insight to Primary Care Placement opportunity is available to Nursing, Pharmacy and Paramedic Students.

The placement will take place within Primary Care and Community settings in Lincolnshire and will involve Insight and Tour Days giving students the opportunity to gain clinical competencies, insights and teaching to carry out health checks, medication reviews, history taking and a wide variety of Primary Care based activities.

Throughout the placement, students will be assigned a clinical supervisor who will be available to support students through this process.

Insight days:

One/two days per week insight visit to your practice, no paperwork or signed competencies required. Introduce nursing students to the day to day activities of General Practice. This could include spending time with any member of the Practice, both clinical and non-clinical.

Tour Days:

Opportunity for any practice to host our health check tour, designed to allow student nurses to conduct health check on pre-selected patients. /captured data such as height, weight, blood pressure or smoking status can be used by a surgery to claim QoF points.

The ideal practice would be able to host seven to ten learners at one time. Supervision will be provided, however if you are able to provide space, equipment such as blood pressure monitors, scales etc

“Your program’s commitment to offering a holistic view of primary care in diverse community settings is particularly appealing to me. I am eager to immerse myself in the various facets of primary care, from public health teams to hospice settings. This opportunity aligns perfectly with my career aspirations and my dedication to contributing meaningfully to the modern NHS.”

Student Comment

“I found myself instantly encouraged to show my interest. The idea of contributing to the community and aiding individuals in their daily lives got my attention.”

Student Comment

“I think that this placement, with its varied opportunities, including insight visits, lectures etc. will offer me an excellent insight into primary care and the ways in which it interacts and crosses over with mental health nursing. I think that the NHS works best when different specialities of care can communicate for the benefit of the care user, and this elective placement would be a fascinating window into that approach.”
