Clinical Preceptorship Policy (Registered Professionals at entering employment - Band 5)

This document presents the Clinical Preceptorship Policy for South Staffordshire and Shropshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (the Trust). This policy provides the framework of support to the newly registered practitioner that is a nurse or Allied Health Professional who is entering employment in England for the first time following professional registration with the NMC or HCPC. It includes those who are recently graduated students, those returning to practice, those entering a new part of the register e.g. community public health specialists and overseas-prepared practitioners who have satisfied the requirements of, and are registered with, their regulatory body.

It does not effect, override or divert from any other policies procedures or practices within the Organisation which are used to ensure competency, safe and effective practice. For example, decisions regarding an employee’s readiness to take responsibility will be determined by the appropriate document or practice employed for all other employees e.g. Medicine administration is covered by the medicines code.
