In partnership with local Universities we provide placements for:
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 we can only provide placements for 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.
Through Career Advisors and Work Experience Coordinators we may also provide short work experience placements for students in Sixth Form colleges. As well as job shadowing opportunities for professionals working within the care and medical sector. Placements of this nature are limited and require consideration as to the suitability of the student to a hospice environment.
During this challenging time, we are doing our utmost to continue caring for the patients and loved ones who need us most.
The way we work has been adapted, with many of our services delivered remotely – such as over the phone, or by video call. And we are working closely with other health care professionals in Worcestershire to share knowledge and expertise at this time.
