Practice placements

We maintain excellent working relationships with local NHS trusts in Greater Manchester and the wider north-west, as well as some independent healthcare providers.

Placements in community and hospital settings

Students on pre-qualifying nursing and midwifery degrees undertake a range of practice placements in both community and hospital settings as part of their training.

All placements are regularly audited to ensure a high-quality learning experience. Clinical staff based within each practice placement are allocated to students to support learning and participate in practice assessment of relevant competencies.

Placement providers

Our placement zone maps for nursing and midwifery identify some of the main placement providers we currently use. However, there are many more health centres and locations that we use, particularly for community placements.
