Since January 2015 Mark has supported hospital and services, across the UK, with ensuring the preceptorships they offer are as good as they can be.
This role has developed to cover a variety of areas and he now criss-crosses the country attending careers fairs at universities and job fairs, support units with open days and liaising with universities regarding placements and opportunities to promote Elysium Healthcare, while providing support and supervision for staff on the Preceptorship Academy. 

Mark has aided Elysium Healthcare in securing RCN Accreditation for the Preceptorship they offer and supported the programme to be shortlisted for a national award in 2018.

Marks workshop, on Preceptorship, has a focus on ensuring that any nearly qualified nurse knows what to look for in a programme, what to ask about and most of all, how to get what you need from your future employer!

Sepsis awareness

From deaths door to saving lives
Student nurse Katie Dutton will be speaking about her experience of sepsis, and how this near death experience inspired her the train as a nurse. Since then, Katie has trained over 160 student nurses to recognise the signs of sepsis in practice and act appropriately.
Learn how we can all do more to improve patient outcomes from sepsis and why we are all responsible for recognising the signs of infection early.
