Return to Practice (RTP)

CMFT supports qualifed nurses whose registration with the NMC has lapsed, to come back to nursing. We work in partnership with Manchester Metropolitan University's Return to Practice Programme, providing placements to complete the number of return to practice hours required. This is dependent on how long the nurse has been out of practice. We provide a sign-off mentor, to guide, support and assess the student enabling them to successfully complete the Return to Practice Programme and re-register with the NMC.

Once you are allocated a placement in the Trust, your point of contact for any concerns you may have is: Kirsty.walsh@cmft.nhs.uk or 0161 701 1854
