If you think you have symptoms, please do not attend your hospital appointment until you are advised it is safe to do so. Please contact us to rearrange your appointment, or to re-organise treatment and tests.

What will I achieve on the programme?

The Return Practice Programme prepares you for re-entry onto the professional register. The programme is an essential requirement for returning to nursing and regaining Registration.

How is the programme funded?

As part of the Programme if you are a Nurse, AHP or HCS HEE can provide funding for out-of-pocket expenses and any relevant RtP course or appropriate postgraduate study delivered by English AHP/HCS pre-registration universities.

There is more information on professional bodies and details of current university courses available on the HEE website. 

What will Clinical Practice be able to offer me?

What will happen afterwards?

Upon completion of the programme you will be able to apply for a permanent position within the trust as a registered professional.
