Teaching

As we are a teaching hospital, the medical, nursing and allied health staff caring for you may have students working with them. It is possible that you will be asked to discuss details of your condition and to undergo an examination by the students.

You have the right to refuse examination by students at any time.

Interns, Resident Medical Officers and registrars are not students but qualified doctors. Most are undergoing ongoing training and therefore form an important part of the FSH workforce. You may be assessed by any of these medical officers, however any decisions about the provision of care is still ultimately overseen by consultant specialists.
