Work Placements and Work Experience

In partnership with local Universities we provide placements for:

  • Student Nurses (3rd year)
  • Medical students
  • Doctors in training
  • Student Social Workers
  • Student Counsellors
  • Paramedic students
  • Complementary Therapy students

Through Career Advisors and Work Placement Coordinators we also provide work placements and work experience for students in Sixth Form colleges and Worcester College of Technology.

These placements range from a half-day up to six months and it’s an ideal way to gain a good insight into the philosophy of Hospice care and how we care for patients and their families.

Because of the demand for such placements we can only provide placements for schools, colleges and universities that we have an agreement with. If you are not sure whether your education provider fits into this category please contact your placement coordinator.

When we have capacity to accommodate students outside of these arrangements the following charges will apply:
