We are proud to announce we are in negotiation with Manchester Medical School to provide a teaching environment and placement scheme for student doctors to spend some time with us,  with our staff and carers to understand the impact of caring on health and wellbeing, and to help them develop a “ carer friendly “ practice, before they start their medical carer.

We would become part of the Community Day Placement Scheme with the Medical School, whereby student doctors can select to come to us as part of their training, as you can appreciate student doctors have to learn a wide range of clinical and non-clinical skills, before they start their career in practice.

We are looking to enrich the experience of the student doctors, in that we would like to provide the following experience for the student doctors:

  • CEO to provide a 30 min talk to the student doctors on Carer awareness and national statistics on the impact of caring on both physical and mental health
  • To develop a team of volunteer carers that would be interested in providing a supported learning environment, through a luncheon session, to discuss the health impacts of caring for someone, what a good doctor looks like and where areas of practice can be improved
  • Recruit a lead volunteer that would help coordinate the teaching placements during the life of the partnership

Please can you contact us if you would like to be part of the team of carers that will be supported to provide the supported learning environment to help shape the next generation of doctors….

We will provide a lead coordinator that will book you into slots on rotation (no more than 4 a month) for you to come into the centre, have lunch with student doctors and be part of this exciting new partnership.
