Reducing Pre-registration Attrition and Improving Retention (RePAIR)

 
RePAIR is a multi-professional cultural change programme. It covers the four fields of nursing, midwifery and allied health professions (AHPs). RePAIR is delivered regionally through local HEE/HEI partnerships.

Phase one ran from October 2015 for three years and phase two commenced in July 2019.

Delivering sustainable growth in the workforce, through an increased supply of newly qualified nurses, midwives and AHPs is vital to meeting the ambitions of the Long-term Plan and the government commitment to deliver 50,000 additional nurses by March 2024.

The current focus of RePAIR is to improve student retention; to understand the immediate and longer term impact of the pandemic on pre-registration student attrition; to support the transition from education to employment, to maximise the number of newly qualified nurses, midwives and AHPs entering the NHS in England.
