Elective Programme: What are the Occupational Health requirements?
Three months before your placement you will be sent an email about Occupational Health requirements. You will need to complete the form on line regarding the following:
- Hepatitis B Surface Antigen
- Hepatitis B Antibodies
- Hepatitis C Antibodies
- Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)
- Status for German Measles
- Status for Measles
- Status for Chicken Pox
- Status for TB
It will take one week, probably less, for your test results to be processed. Until you have been cleared by Occupational Health you can only observe clinical work. There is no charge if you need tests taken in the Occupational Health Department.
