Work experience is a fantastic way to gain an insight into a particular career. It can also be an invaluable way of gaining confidence and an understanding of what it is like to work and care for people in a health care setting.

Work experience placements are offered in a variety of ways from 1 day to 1 week block placements.  There are restrictions which apply in some areas due to service demands, and health and safety.

Work experience placements are available in a wide range of working environments both clinical and non-clinical, some of which have patient contact and others which do not. These are outlined in the work experience directory.
