Clinical Placements Update

Dear students and staff colleagues,

You should continue to attend external placements unless your individual placement organisation has decided to temporarily suspend placements. We believe that the individual organisations are best placed to evaluate their specific situation and will make wise decisions with everyone’s health and well-being in mind (patients, staff and students). The provision of some level of mental health services will need to remain – even in the current circumstances.

Please liaise with David Spektor and Angie Jackman if there are changes to your placement arrangements. For those students whose placements are interrupted, we will consider how we can address this when we know the full extent of the impact (or at least when this becomes clearer).
