Work Experience

Important information regarding Work Experience placements: COVID-19 update

As employers providing front line health and care, Bedfordshire Hospitals NHS FT has a duty to protect our staff, patients, visitors and their families.

This includes taking reasonable steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

As a result, in line with the decision to suspend Clinical Attachments, we had taken the decision to also suspend all Work Experience placements. This is still under review and so we are unable to support these placements until a decision has been made.

Please rest assured that we intend to resume placements for students when it is appropriate for activity to be re-introduced and  further information will be posted on our website when available.

We hope that you appreciate that this decision has not been made lightly and we thank you for your understanding.

To reduce pressure on our staff, it would be appreciated if you could refrain from contacting us with work experience enquiries at this time. Please do keep referring to our website for updates.

In this interim period, there are lots of virtual platforms available which offer advice and guidance for anyone looking to pursue a career in healthcare. We hope that you find these helpful:
