Ellie Fowler joined the practice team on July 1st to begin a five week placement in primary care as part of her degree course in Child Nursing

Ellie is in the second year of her 3 year B.Sc. degree course in Child Nursing at Edgehill University. Most of the work placements take place in a hospital setting at Alder Hey Children's Hospital but the five-week enhancement placement at Ainsdale Medical Centre is designed to provide a brief but comprehensive insight into the role of primary care.

She will be spending time shadowing all the different roles that make up the practice team and also going out to meet members of the wider integrated team that includes health visitors, midwives and district nurses.

She will work under the expert mentorship of Sr O'Connor and Sr North during her 5 week placement and we are delighted to welcome her to the practice.

The partnership between Edgehill and Ainsdale Medical Centre is now in its 26th year and it is something we value very highly as part of our overall role as a Training practice.

You can find out more about the different roles that make up our practice team in our Guide to Primary Care.
