• Students

It’s important that NHS careers adapt to evolving patient and population needs. 90% per cent of consultations happen in primary care. Quality primary care placements are key to engaging new talent and building the multidisciplinary workforce of the future.


Students are the workforce of the future, placements in primary care can help build their understanding of the patient journey and wider factors influencing health and wellbeing, as well as raise the profile of opportunities within primary care.
