4. Follow-up correspondence

At the end of the online questionnaire, respondents were told that if they were affected by any of the questions and wanted to discuss the issues, they should contact the SCoR in confidence. The SCoR received a number of emails as a result which explored some of the issues raised by the online questionnaire in more depth. The following themes summarise the main issues raised in this correspondence:

  • Racial discrimination;
  • Culture of exclusion e.g. students ignored on placement and not involved in the team: “students should be seen and not heard”;
  • Physical sickness due to experiences during placement;
  • Students have reported bullying but it has not been dealt with in the correct manner as the clinicians appear better supported with the student being in a less powerful position;
  • Mature students feel like they are being treated as children.
