Missed hours: 

If you miss hours due to illness/public holiday, it is your responsibility to discuss with the site makeup hours during your placement dates. This could be extending your hours during the week or on the weekend. If the site cannot support the makeup hours, then you will need to let your unit coordinator and the clinical office know. We will make a note of the missed hours which will be made up a later stage during your course.

If you do miss your placement due to illness, you will need to provide a medical certificate. Please ensure you contact the site and clinical facilitator in the first instance and let the necessary people know that you will not be attending. You will also need to email your unit coordinator and the clinical office and let them know you will not be attending. Submit your medical certificate once received.
