Following reading research into gaps in service for the primary care (PC) sector, and in view of both NATH and NHS Englands aim to increase Allied Health Professional (AHP) roles in PC in order to bridge the gap, I decided to focus my resource to support this intervention called "Occupational Therapy Student Placements in Primary Care". The resource is an infographic with the aim is provide information on how to source placements in Nottinghamshire primary care for OT students and the importance of this. I am aiming the resource at universities rather than students as they primarily source placements (results from a survey I distributed). The universities would have to be able to link with NATH, therefore I predict that it could be Nottingham University, University of Derby, Nottingham Trent University and Sheffield Hallam University.
