Dear Colleagues

Ulster CTC are delighted we have been able to remain open to continue undertaking the Test of Competence (ToC) part 2 (OSCE assessments).

In order to do so, our risk assessments for all campus-based activity, including the operations of the Competency Test Centre (CTC), are robust and designed to ensure that identified risks are thoroughly addressed so as to enable us to deliver a safe and controlled campus environment for essential work, study and assessment.

It is vitally important for your comfort, safety and wellbeing that you read and follow our measures and guidelines on campus, including the following:

Safe Campus environment

  • To ensure your personal wellbeing and that of the centre please complete the health declaration prior to attending your OSCE.   It is advised to complete this the day before your OSCE.
  • If you have cold or flu like symptoms, or develop COVID19 symptoms, become unwell or have been in contact with a person who has tested positive for COVID19 you should not attend the centre and inform the CTC who will arrange an alternative test date.
  • Please arrive at the centre at your allocated time and not before.
  • Please arrive at the centre dressed in uniform and ready for the test.
  • When on campus, you must exercise good hand hygiene, maintain social distancing, and follow the one-way systems which are in operation and marked.
  • Face coverings must be worn when on campus, in general circulation spaces, social   spaces, enclosed spaces and any other areas in our buildings when maintaining 2m   social distancing is difficult or may not be possible.
