All of my second year hospital placements were observational only; they involved 5 weeks of being off the road and in different departments in hospital, week beginning 28 September 2015.I was fortunate enough to be welcomed into the Intermediate Dependency Area (IDA), the Coronary Care Unit (CCU), the Neurological Critical Care/Major Trauma Unit (NCCU) and into the Delivery Unit of the Birthing centre.
