In a drive to better support all staff who supervise students, as well as the students themselves during their clinical placements, Somerset Community Health has formed an alliance with the SouthWest SHA, University of Plymouth, Bournemouth University, UCP Marjon and Exeter University.
This partnership has resulted in the signing of the Learning and Development Agreement and the National Partnership Agreement. These documents clearly state the responsibilities and roles of the Trust and the Universities.
