Work Shadowing

For students age 16 +

This is limited to one day only observing a professional of your choice in either a clinical or non clinical role.  The age of 16 years you will need to visit site during term times – this is due to health and safety regulations, insurance and school support being required.  Within this age bracket you will not be allowed to shadow in A&E/Obs & Gynae/Mortuary/Children’s Ward/Midwifery.

For students over 18 years of age we can arrange a day for you at any time of the year.

Your placement can be at any site across our organisation.  An Honorary contract is not required for work shadowing, but you will be required to complete an application form and confidentiality agreement.

If you wish to be considered for a work shadowing placement please email or alternatively contact Katie Baker in Workforce Development.
