An observership is an informal observational experience; observers may not participate in patient care or management. 

How to apply

In order to apply for an observership, you should complete and return an application form to the-christie.observers@nhs.net. Applications will not be processed until all documentation has been received.

In support of an application, you will need to send the following information:

  • Passport
  • Visa - if appropriate
  • A Letter of Good Standing from local Constabulary or Ministry of Justice Department
  • An up to date Police Check from home country or country of employment/study
  • Reference from current employer
  • Payment of the administration fee

Once an observership has been agreed, we will issue you with an invitation letter. You should not arrange accommodation or travel until you have received this invitation letter. A fee is payable for all observerships.

Any completed application should be received at least 6 months prior to a proposed visit.
