Working At NHS from 9am-5pm
Honorary Observer (Former Employee) – London, Roayl Brompton Hospital – 1 April 2018
This placement provided me with the opportunity to know with whom and what I will be dealing with if I choose a career in medicine. I took part in several projects and a study during my time at the hospital. For example, Lung Ultrasound sessions with Heart Failure management team and High Dependency unit, completing the introduction to Medical Statistics Course, and taking part in a 10 year study. I had to use scientific skills such as collecting, recording, and interpreting data skills to carry out given tasks. While working in the hospital environment I was able to adapt to rules and regulations which included following Trust’s policies/procedures, and health and safety. Commitment is crucial when it comes to working for NHS, I had to be punctual and self organised. Shadowing doctors was beneficial for me due to learning the importance of confidentiality and trust between patient and physician through effective communication.
