Royal Liverpool Hospital
Delivery Method: Work Experience

The Royal Liverpool & Broadgreen University Hospital Trust acknowledges its social responsibility to engage with young people within the local community by offering work related learning opportunities.

We are committed to providing work experience placements to assist people in developing an understanding of working life in a health care setting. If you are thinking of a career in the NHS then work experience could be for you. Having the chance to experience a working environment prior to making a career choice will prove very valuable in helping you plan your long-term future.

Work experience in the Royal offers the opportunity to sample a variety of jobs, across the whole range of interest and academic ability. The Trust can offer a wide range of work experience placements in clinical and non-clinical areas. You will be supported by a mentor throughout your visit with us.
