    Hi, I've moved your thread to the Nursing and Midwifery section so hopefully you'll find someone in the same situation here.

    When I started I'm sure I had an occupational health meeting over the summer where I got my first Hep B, but I'm not sure how other unis organise it (depends when your first placement starts). Best thing to do would be to phone the uni's occupational health department and explain that you're starting in September and would like to know whether you need to get any injections before you start, as you might also need a BCG and Mantoux test if you haven't already had them.
