CMFT recognise that the transition from student to accountable
practitioner can be a daunting, as well as exciting, time. The
preceptorship team are available to answer any queries about the
programme and can help guide and support preceptee's through their
first year in practice.
New to CMFT are preceptorship facilitators. With years of
experience in the clinical environment, they are a point of contact
and support for new registrants to the trust. As well as being
visible around the trust visiting clinical areas, the preceptorship
facilitators can be contacted to provide one on one support and
guidance as needed. Regular drop in sessions are also held by the
preceptorship facilitators, giving preceptee's the opportunity to
discuss their progress away from the clinical environment.
Each clinical area also has a preceptorship champion, please
click link below. This list is currently in the process of being
updated, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
if you experience any contact issues.
