Work Experience

From 14 upwards, you can get a taster of what it’s like to work in healthcare.

Relevant to: All fields

Work experience is an opportunity for people to experience what it is like to work in healthcare. It gives people a chance to see what happens in hospitals, offices and labs, so people can see for themselves what healthcare organisations do – and the variety of careers on offer.

Who can apply for work experience?

The general principle is that you must be at least 14 years of age for non-clinical work experience, and at least 16 years of age for clinical work experience.

Different Trusts across south London also have different criteria for who can apply for work experience, most only provide opportunities for students who live or study in an area that is local to the Trust.

How do I apply?

We currently have information only on applying for work experience at Guys and St Thomas’s Hospital, Kings College Hospital, Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust and South London and Mental Health NHS Trust.

We are currently working to improve the access to information on work experience across more healthcare organisations in south London.
