Health Students – Are you going out on Placement?

Before you go out on your health student placement in Wales there are a few things you should do before you pack your toothbrush.

Make sure you have collected the library placement card, which will enable you to borrow books whilst on placement at NHS Health Boards/Trust libraries around Wales. The library placement cards are ready for you to collect from the enquiry desk of the Health Library on the first floor following announcement of your first placement.

Also make sure you have got the BNF app downloaded to your phone and get the Uptodate mobile friendly site bookmarked.

Look at what the Eduroam access is for the site you are visiting and get it set up to access before you go.
