Following our 'Outstanding' rating in 2013, the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) performed their annual monitoring event earlier this year (Nursing and Midwifery Council Annual Monitoring Report, March 2014). We've achieved the best outcomes possible, which is an indication our professional education (including teaching and placements) is of the highest quality.

The NMC said that they:
  • commended the passion of our staff, and their proactive approach.
  • were blown away by the moderation of practice assessment and the way that process informs our activities in the practice areas.
  • were very impressed with our partnership working. They also commended our students.

We're committed to making sure that our students are fit for clinical practice, but also that they're passionate about the work they do. We take care to embed the NHS Constitution into our teaching every step of the way.

The Practice Team is responsible for allocating all health and social care students' practical experience. If you are an Education Liaison Manager please refer to our NHS Trust Managers page. If you are a professional who work with students in the practice learning environment, please visit the Practice Portal for the Online Mentor Update.

If you are a prospective student, you might like to know what placement area we cover before you apply or start on a course. We have created a series of maps which will give you an idea of the placement areas attached to your course. We have also included a mileage matrix to give an indication of distance from our campuses to practice areas.

Please see the documents below that will give you insight to the variety of practice placements you will experience during your nursing course. The guide to your practice placements brochure will give you further information about the professional and academic requirements of your practice placements.
