Somerset Partnership NHS Foundation Trust offers a wealth of experience to the student nurse and student allied health professional, from highly motivated and skilled staff, a multi-disciplinary perspective and beautiful rural localities.

In addition, with the merger of the community and Mental Health Trusts in 2011, nursing students have access across various fields of nursing, (Adult Community, Learning Disabilities and Mental Health).

Our links with U.W.E, Plymouth and Bournemouth Universities are strengthened by close working ties between the Academic Leads and regular Placement Development meetings.

From time to time, the universities may call upon clinicians from the Trust to deliver training to students from their specialties’, which helps link theory and practice.

New students to the Trust will attend an induction session, which gives an overview of the Trust and the Practice Placement Team, who invite representatives from the workplace to provide an overview of services to clients and experiences on offer to the student.

As a Trust, we look forward to you successfully completing your training and joining our workforce.

It is from this point, you become a preceptee, and as such, you will receive our ongoing support.
