Overseas qualified doctors who wish to work in the NHS are strongly advised to undertake a clinical attachment to observe practice within the UK.
The Scheme offered by The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust aims to help and support overseas doctors to integrate into the NHS through the provision of a structured 8 week clinical attachment programme.
Information about the scheme can be found here: Clinical Attachments at the Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust.
Each doctor will be placed with a consultant within the specialty who is known as a Clinical Supervisor, who is responsible for supervising them during the observership.
The programme is administered by the Medical Education Manager, Debbie Harrison, who is the first point of contact for any queries. Dr Jon Clark, Director PGME, is the clinical lead for the programme and Mrs Karen Shaw, Clinical Skills Facilitator co-ordinates the structured programme.
