Welcome to the GM Synergy Project

The GM Synergy Project is a coaching style practice placement model bespoke to Greater Manchester. It is based upon coaching ideologies with a strong emphasis on patient centered care, clinical leadership and peer learning. The model will not only improve students experience and learning in practice, but will also increase placement capacity significantly for all learners, enabling student nurse numbers across Greater Manchester to grow in accordance with workforce needs.
