Placement Development between Primary Care and a Health & Social Care organisation• Primary Care Organisation – Brownlow Group Practice and Enhanced Training Practice• Multi Local Organisation –  Health and Social Care Organisation– Person Shaped Support (PSS)Brownlow Group Practice and Person Shaped Support (PSS) have worked in partnership with the North West Placement Development Network (NWPDN) to develop an increase in access to Primary Care placement opportunities. The objective of this unique placement development was to design a placement that has the scope to provide the student with insight and learning across primary, social care and the wider public health arena. This has been identified as a key opportunity for pre-registration student nurses from all fields, including the Integrated programme for Nursing and Social Work. The exposure to health, social care and public health elements provides an excellent opportunity where the student can gain knowledge and skills linked to an integrated approach to patient centred care. Both Brownlow Group Practice and PSS have a strong teaching and learning ethos which lends itself to supporting student nurses.  Adopting a hub and spoke approach the student will spend 50% of their placement in each organisation. This is managed and supported by the mentor and educator within each organisation.To read more case studies in this series click on the author below (North West Placement Development Network)
