Clinical Attachments for overseas doctors
Overseas doctors applying for jobs, or preparing for the PLAB examination may find it useful to undertake a clinical attachment. This is a non-paid, non contact observership. Doctors do not need to be registered with the GMC to undergo a clinical attachment as they will not be carrying out any procedures. Usually, clinical attachments last for 4 - 6 weeks, during which time the doctor will be attached to a consultant and observe their work. Clinical attachments provide invaluable experience of the NHS, and can help overseas doctors gain a reference for future job applications.

Clinical attachments are arranged directly with NHS Hospitals. Doctors should contact the Personnel department, or Director of Postgraduate Medical Education at the hospital in which they wish to work. It may also be helpful if they ask their supervisor in their home country whether they have any contacts in the UK to whom the doctor could be attached.

Temporary opportunities for overseas doctors
For details of temporary opportunities, including working as locum doctors, please contact NHS Professionals on 0845 60 60 345 or visit the NHS Professionals website at: http://www.nhsprofessionals.nhs.uk/
