Say This, Not That: improve communication with patients

Welcome to the Clinical Education and Training team!

As a small and diverse team we are responsible for the training and education of all disciplines and grades in a variety of clinical skills. All of our clinical training is supported by evidence based practice and national best practice guidance.

As a student with us you will be working closely with the MDT. You also may be undertaking audit and clinical governance, assisting in clinical simulations, attending and following up medical emergencies (please see “example timetables” tab for previous placement experiences).
