Preceptorship Opportunity

In order to increase recruitment and retention into ARRS (Additional Roles Reimbursement Scheme) roles in Primary Care, we are piloting a Preceptorship for 3 ARRS Roles: Mental Health Practitioners, First Contact Physiotherapists and Pharmacy Technicians. We are seeking expressions of interest from people who would like to become a Preceptor with the programme. The Preceptor will support those new into an ARRS role in General Practice, especially those new to Primary Care, to get a great start in their role.

The main aim of the Preceptorship is to welcome and integrate those appointed to ARRS roles into their new primary care environment. It helps these professionals translate their knowledge and experience into the generalpractice setting, grow in confidence and understand how to apply their experience in their day-to-day work. There are currently 3 different Preceptorship opporunities: Invitation to Tender Preceptorships, Becoming a Preceptor and Joining a Preceptorship. The below information outlines each opportunity and how you can get involved.
