Return To Practice (RTP)

If you’re thinking of coming back to nursing, midwivery or an allied health professional then this might be the right place for you!

Many leave a NHS profession for a variety of reasons including childcare or carers responsibilities or to start a new career.  It can be difficult to know where to start if you do want to return.  

You may need to undertake a return to practice programme if you've previously been a registered and wish to return to the profession.  The courses are funded by Health Education England.  For more information visit the Health Education England (HEE) ‘Come Back’ website here to find out why some others have decided to RTP and find out their experiences. Or Visit Health careers here which includes more information including FAQs and an email guide

If you do decide Return to Practice (RTP) is for you,  CHFT would love to be part of your journey, and we are regularly recruit applicants wishing to return to delivering compassionate care to our patients.  This is an exciting opportunity in which you will be offered employment whilst you undertake the course. 

We currently have positions in a variety of clinical areas and you will be supported by your ward/department team as well as the clinical educators to attend University teaching.  The practice placement requirement of your Return to Practice (RTP) course will be based on your employing ward/department. 

Throughout your Return to Practice (RTP) training you will be employed in a Band 3 post which will progress to a Band 5 position on successful completion of the course and re-registration to the NMC or HCPC.
