Medical Clinical Attachments

Cardiff and Vale University Health Board are pleased to offer clinical attachment placements . A clinical attachment is a short term unpaid placement for a qualified international 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
  • Doctors requesting experience of a particular specialty to aid career choice

In accordance with Home Office Visa recommendations, International attachments are limited to a maximum of 8 weeks.

All Clinical Attachment doctors will still need to undertake the same checks as any other member of staff working for the NHS, including Occupational Health clearance and the Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) clearance or International Police Checks.
