Student practice nurse placements are a first for Solihull

Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is helping to tackle the national shortage of GP practice-based nurses by hosting its first group of students at six local surgeries.

Six student nurses in their second year of training at Birmingham City University are undertaking full-time, nine-week placements with Solihull practices - the first full programme in the region.

The move by the CCG is aimed at encouraging student nurses to follow a career in primary care.
