Your First Day

Preparing for a new role can be daunting. To ensure your first day goes smoothly, make sure you read our advice:

Before You Begin

1. Double-check the exact details of your shift: what time do you start? Where are you expected to arrive? To whom should you report?
2. Make sure your relevant identification and documentation are up-to-date and close at hand.
3. Ensure you have familiarised yourself with the dress code at your new place of work.
4. Look through all of The Medical Room's policies and guidelines relating to your new role.
5. Allow plenty of travel time - it is best to arrive early and have time to relax! 


On Arrival

1. Introduce yourself to your new colleagues and find the person to whom you should report.
2. Familiarise yourself with the layout of your new place of work, including where to find refreshments and toilets.
3. Check you know where relevant procedure and policy documents are stored.
4. Confirm the location of the relevant emergency numbers, equipment and exits.
5. Receive a briefing of your first day's duties.


During Your Shift

1. If ever in doubt - ask the relevant superior or colleague.
2. Keep track of documentation, particularly legal documents that must be recorded officially.
3.  Adhere strictly to all procedures, policies, and health and safety measures.
4. Remain vigilant regarding identification checks and security on site while you are still familiarising yourself with your fellow staff and new location.
5. Ensure you leave your place of work in the same state in which you found it in order to assist colleagues on later shifts.
