How does the Primary Care Nurse Training Programme work?

Approximately 20 nurses per year are recruited through lead place-based Federation/CCG employers and placed on two 6-month rotations in practices across Sheffield, Rotherham, Doncaster, Bassetlaw and Barnsley.

The preceptorship programme can also be accessed by practices across SY&B who have recently recruited new-to-GP nurses. These nurses will remain in their employed practice for the whole year and access the training on the programme.

Primary care-specific clinical nursing and organisational skills plus pastoral and mentoring support is delivered by the clinical team at the SY&B Primary Care Workforce & Training Hub.
