We offer a range of programmes throughout the year to accommodate as many requests as possible. This includes opportunities during February half term and the Easter holidays.

Due to service demands we are unable to provide this type of placement. We offer a 1 week Nursing/Paediatric Cadetship programme for students wishing to apply for Nursing work experience.

For those interested in a career in medicine, we offer a four-day Medical Work Experience Programme in February and July each year.

We have developed a ew one-week Allied Health Professionals programme which provides an insight into physiotherapy, speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, dietetics, orthoptics and audiology.

Our face-to-face work experience opportunities are in high demand and capacity is limited.

Therefore, we are only able to offer one experience per applicant.

Our programmes are designed to offer a holistic experience which provides opportunities to observe and participate in range of activities.
