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 preceptorship@cmft.nhs.uk if you experience any contact issues.

Preceptorship Lead Caroline Williams

14082204_001_Williams Caroline Williams - Preceptorship Lead

RGN, RSCN, BsC Nursing Studies and MSc in Practice Development.

I began my career at CMFT in 1986 as a newly qualified Registered General Nurse working on the Neonatal Surgical Unit, St Mary's Hospital. My career started as a junior staff nurse and I progressed through each band up to band 7 Sister.

Education and staff support has remained important throughout my career both as an Education and Development Practitioner and currently as a Practice Education Facilitator and Preceptorship lead.

I have seen many changes during my career but a constant has been my commitment to life-long learning and have continually updated myself educationally.
