Dear Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust,

I have been seconded into a post funded by the Office for Students as part of the Strategic Interventions in Health Education Disciplines programme. My role is to explore barriers prospective Orthoptic students face when trying to secure a work experience/shadow placement in Orthoptic departments in England.

To understand current practices I would like to request the following information:

1. How many applications for Orthoptic work experience did your Trust receive in
a) Sept 2016 - Sept 2017
b) Sept 2017 - Sept 2018
2. How many applications resulted in a work experience placement?
3. What is the minimum age for work experience in Orthoptics?
4. Do applicants for work experience in Orthoptics require a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check?
5. What paperwork are applicants required to complete?
6. Are applicants required to complete an induction?

Yours faithfully,

Carly Hegarty
