At East Lancashire Teaching Hospitals, we aim to offer a variety of work experience placements in both clinical and non-clinical areas. Work Experience within the NHS offers an excellent opportunity to gain an insight into the wide range of healthcare professions. 

Did you know that there are around 350 different careers options within the NHS?

For participants over the age of 16, we offer observational work experience placements.  These provide an opportunity to meet members of staff and shadow them in their jobs.
