Work experience and placements

50% of the course is based in clinical practice. Placements are based in a variety of hospitals, community, clinics and social care settings including caring for patients/clients in their own homes. This includes a range of different shift patterns across a 24 hour cycle.

Erasmus and elective placement opportunities are also available.

Uniform and Dress Code Policy
This course includes compulsory hospital and community placements; these are an essential component for completion of the course. Whilst on placement, students must adhere to the uniform / dress code policy of the placement provider.

The UHL NHS Trusts and other placement providers have given careful consideration to cultural and religious needs relating to uniform policies / dress codes. These have been developed in conjunction with local / national cultural and religious bodies. This is to ensure that local / national infection control guidance is adhered to. Whilst every attempt has been made to accommodate individual needs, there are some areas where the need to fully comply with infection control guidance has overridden religious requirements.
