Outward facing role that requires engagement with personnel in 15 NHS Trusts and providers of NHS commissioned care within the independent sector. The focus of this engagement is to ensure that the quality and range of practice placements for students undertaking under graduate healthcare programmes meets the standards of the educational institution and the professional, regulatory and statutory bodies. This allows me to further my interest in the development of professional practice.
