Covid-19 Advice

Students are advised that they must follow their placement provider's policies and guidelines at all times while on placement in relation to Covid processes and reporting.  This includes adhering to your placement provider's guidance on Covid testing, contact tracing and reporting, in addition to meticulous hand hygiene and use of PPE. Please be mindful of how your actions outside placement could put yourself, your colleagues and service users at risk - use face coverings, maintain social distance and reduce contacts outside your household in accordance with current government advice.

If you attend your placement while you have symptoms of covid-19 you will put service users/ clients/ patients and staff at risk of Covid-19 infection.  Please read the requirements for safe practice and avoiding harm to service users/ clients/ patients in the professional codes of conduct and ethics for your future profession: Nursing and Midwifery Council (link to external website)

Covid-19 Immunisations - Important advice for all students in relation to placement learning

A significant number of our placement providers expect their staff to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 and these placements require all students who attend placement in their organisation also to be fully vaccinated. Any delays in ensuring that you are fully vaccinated could prevent you from commencing a placement.
