Redeployment of trainees

We recognise that healthcare science trainees will be an important part of the response and recovery to the pandemic. However this should not be to the detriment of their training.

Trainees can be redeployed if there are benefits in relation to their ongoing learning and this can be incorporated into their training plans but we would not expect them to be redeployed for prolonged periods or into roles that do not enhance their learning and development.

Training should continue wherever possible so as not to disrupt the future workforce pipeline. If trainees are being asked to be redeployed or to take on service support roles that do not meet their learning objectives then please contact the School for further advice.
