Preceptorship at Cambridge University Hospital is an exciting opportunity to take ownership of your career at CUH and work to transition into your role as a registered member of our team, promoting our values of Together Safe, Kind and Excellent.
We understand that the time following registration as a health care professional can be challenging. Our inter-professional Preceptorship programme provides support and guidance to assist you safely through this transition.
Our newly registered health professionals include:
- Occupational Therapists
- Nurses – Adult and Paediatric trained
- Operating Department Practitioners
- Radiographers – Diagnostic
- Radiographers – Therapeutic
- Speech and Language Therapists
- Healthcare Scientists
- Nursing Associates
- Return to Practice Nurses and Midwives
As a preceptee you will be a key stakeholder in the development of the programme, feeding in to the process with advice, feedback and suggestions at our Preceptorship forums.
We all know that good support and guidance during this period is essential. Newly registered practitioners who manage the transition successfully are able to provide effective care more quickly, feel better about their role and are more likely to remain within the profession.
We are extremely proud of our well evaluated Inter-professional Preceptorship programme which meet the recommendations of the Department of Health (2010) for all newly qualified health care professionals. The flexibility of this programme not only allows you to achieve the outcomes required by your service, it also supported your individual professional and personal goals throughout.
We look forward to welcoming newly registered staff on our Trust Corporate Induction. Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Care Professional then undertake inter-professionals learning during their first year at CUH. This is a collaborative journey which we look forward to joining you on.
