This week all students participated in a pioneering pilot scheme developed by West Lancashire College and the Lancashire and South Cumbria Primary Care Training Hub aimed to increase knowledge of the wide ranging roles, responsibilities and holistic treatment of patients in the NHS.

– Second year students were trained by Yvonne Thompson, to become facilitators in the passing on of knowledge to year 1 students focusing on holistic care.

– Year 1 students then did an amazing job of presenting their findings.
Ex Standish Community High School Libby said “Today’s workshop was really interesting in learning about the depths of the healthcare services and how you have to look at the person as a whole and not just a symptom”
You make us proud!

Iain Hook from University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust said “”The group of Year 12 and 13 students from West Lancashire College were eloquent, well-mannered, thoughtful and enthusiastic about their learning. A real credit to themselves and the College.”
Thank you Yvonne, Iain and Sam.

North West Practice Education Group has been working on the development of an online presence to publicise the work completed and to provide a platform for the core work of the group – sharing best practice and supporting and sharing initiatives to improve quality.

The North West Practice Education Group site has launched with the first of a series of blogs promoting one of the projects which the group secured funding for, that is being led from the University of Salford – the NW educator project which will launch soon. This will provide a central development resource to support our practice partners in developing their skills to support our students… feed in into sustained CPD supported through the online network, this is supported by a YouTube channel which we can utilise to share webinar recordings.

We recently hosted our Webinar on A Persons Life Journey through Health and Social Care. View the recording below and download the powerpoint here.

The placements we offer include:

This placement has been developed in partnership with Primary Care, Social Care, Virgin Care 0-19 years, Student Quality Ambassadors, Patient Representatives, Edge Hill University, University of Central Lancashire, and University of Cumbria for Pre-Registration Nurses. This placement is a unique and innovative experience encompassing a ‘Person’s Life Journey through Health and Social Care’, underpinning the journey from birth to death. The student experience will include allocated time within all 3 sectors which allows the student to gain a holistic overview of the person, care they receive and services they access across their life journey.

These placements are for students who are allocated to a main placement area (hub) where they will spend the majority of their placement, but also visit associated placement areas (spokes) for shorter periods of time in other settings and with different clinicians within the same allocation period.

Standard placements is one placement where the student will remain for the whole allocated time period.
