Primary Care Apprentice of the Week – Fiona Newby

2 November, 2023

Primary care services provide the first point of contact in the healthcare system, acting as the ‘front door’ of the NHS.

We are highlighting employers and apprentices’ experiences of apprenticeships in Primary Care. This week’s Featured Apprentice is Fiona Newby. Fiona is a Level 5 Nursing Associate (NMC 2018) Apprentice at Risedale Surgery. We spoke to Fiona about her experiences of undertaking an apprenticeship.
