Pregnancy and PEP

If you intend to enrol in a subject which contains PEP while you are pregnant, it is important that the PEP Unit is advised as soon as possible.

The PEP team is responsible for ensuring you are not placed at a venue or unit which might put you or your baby's health at risk, for example, at a PEP on oncology or radiology units.

If your pregnancy is confirmed while you are on placement, and you have concerns regarding the location, please contact your PEP facilitator/coach or the Academic Lead: Professional Practice as a matter of urgency.

You should be aware that, due to associated risks, many venues have the right to determine whether or not they will accept pregnant students on PEP. Please contact the PEP team for advice.
