January 2021 - COVID-19 update

Important information regarding work experience placements

As employers providing front line health and care, Oxford University Hospitals has a duty to protect our workers, patients, visitors and their families.

This includes taking reasonable steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

As a result, we have taken the decision to suspend all non-essential student placements with immediate effect and until further notice.

The situation will continue to be reviewed in line with Government guidance and information on the current lockdown.

Please rest assured that we will seek to re-schedule placements for students at a later date and when it is appropriate for activity to be re-introduced.

It would be appreciated if you could refrain from contacting our clinical teams with work experience enquiries in the meantime, to reduce pressure on our staff at this time.

We hope that you appreciate that this decision has not been made lightly and we thank you for your understanding.
