East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust (ESHT) are pleased to offer clinical attachment placements at Conquest Hospital and Eastbourne District General Hospital. A clinical attachment is a short term unpaid placement for a qualified doctor who needs experience of the NHS. This is an observer role only and the doctor doing a clinical attachment will not have direct patient contact or take on any responsibility. Clinical attachments are available for the following:
- Doctors who have qualified abroad and would like to gain some experience of UK culture and the NHS
- Doctors returning to practice following a break (eg maternity leave or ill health)
- Doctors requesting experience of a particular specialty to aid career choice
ESHT gives priority to high calibre doctors who have an intention to apply for a vacant position in the Trust. However, please note that doing a clinical attachment does not automatically secure a position at the Trust.
