Offer holders with pre-existing illnesses or disabilities, or who are shielding

We want to make sure we can support you through your studies.

If you suffer or have suffered from a serious illness (physical or psychological), have a disability, or have been required to shield due to Covid-19, please let us know. St George’s is committed to supporting our students and will explore all reasonable adjustments to support you to thrive on your course.

Please contact our Disability Advisor as soon as possible with details to help us establish whether your health history or disability is likely to affect your ability to study or practise. This will also give us sufficient time to carry out a detailed assessment, obtain reports and organise additional expert assessments if required.

Attendance at site

All of our courses include elements of teaching for which you be required to attend the University site and attendance at these sessions will be essential to enable you to engage with the course and undertake assessments.

Placements

You will be required to undertake a personal risk assessment before you can attend any placement (or undertake certain other activities such as those which include the practice of clinical skills or require the use of PPE) which is part of your course. Where a health concern arises every effort will be made to identify alternative placements arrangements, but your health and safety will be the first priority, and alternative arrangements may not be possible, which may have implications for your study. If you are clinically vulnerable or have been shielding we strongly encourage you to contact the Disability Advisor now to undertake an assessment.

Covid-19
Covid vaccinations

We do not require you to have been vaccinated against Covid-19 before enrolment, but we recommend that you seek a vaccination as soon as possible.

GMC Good Medical Practice recommends that doctors should be immunised against common serious communicable diseases unless this is contraindicated, and healthcare students on placements are expected to adhere to the same standards.

For students on clinical courses, the Department of Health and Social Care in England and NHS England recognise students on clinical placements as essential workers. Therefore, we recommend that you seek a vaccine before your age‐cohort is invited, in order to ensure you have had at least one, and if possible both doses, before you start your studies.

To do this you could:

  • Ensure your GP is aware that you will be starting a clinical course, and ask if they would vaccinate you as a future essential worker.

  • Book via the NHS England Website, self‐declaring as a healthcare student who will be going on placements. You can use your SGUL offer email as evidence if required.

  • Wait until you are invited as your age-cohort reaches the top of the priority list.

You will be asked to provide details of whether you have or haven’t had a Covid vaccination on your Occupational Health questionnaire for our records.

Covid precautions

We are doing all we can to ensure you feel safe whilst studying at St George’s. We are carefully monitoring Government advice and implementing appropriate measures, these include:

  • Social distancing in line with Government guidelines

  • The use of face coverings within University buildings

  • Provision of hand-sanitising stations throughout the campus

  • Enhanced cleaning services

  • Provision of testing for staff and students
