Edinburgh Patient Partnership


The Edinburgh Patient Partnership Supporting Assessment and Teaching (EPPSAT) service sources patients to contribute to undergraduate and postgraduate clinical examinations and teaching.

Established in 2006, the joint venture currently accommodates in the region of 350 patient volunteers. It is supported by the University of Edinburgh, the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh.

The EPPSAT service is delivered by full time coordinator, a senior nurse who recruits patients and ensures their wellbeing is supported when they assist in examinations and teaching.

Information on how EPPSAT works and how you can help is on their website.
