Quality Mark awarded for Preceptorship Programme

ECCH has been awarded the National Preceptorship Interim Quality Mark from NHS England in recognition for our Preceptorship Programme.

Preceptorship provides a period of guidance and support for newly registered practitioners to develop their knowledge, skills and ability to work as confident and competent health professionals. The aim is to welcome and integrate them into their new teams and roles, giving them the best possible start to their careers.

ECCH’s Practice Education Team started to revise its Preceptorship offer last year following the release of the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC)’s updated Preceptorship Framework.

We are one of the first organisations within the Norfolk and Waveney ICS (Integrated Care System) to receive the Quality Mark, which was introduced in September 2022 as the gold standard for NHS organisations to benchmark themselves against.

Support for newly registered practitioners now includes a series of face-to-face support sessions, preceptee-led online workshops and a clinical induction which have been described as “informative and well delivered” by preceptees.

The Quality Mark was awarded to ECCH at Hamilton House by Catherine Morgan, Chief Nurse for the East of England Region, and Debbie Cubitt, Preceptorship Lead for NHS England – East of England. Attendees also included Sharon Crowle and Justin Brown from Norfolk and Waveney ICS, and Paul Sewell from NHS England – East of England.
