Professional Placements

We welcome requests from qualified healthcare professionals who would like to gain knowledge and understanding of the Hospice and the care and support we offer to patients and their families in palliative and end of life care across our communities.

We receive a high number of requests for shadowing and placements ,we consider each request in conjunction with the relevant clinical team and their capacity to support .

If you are a student requesting a placement, please ask your higher education placement team to contact us.

We regularly run a professional visitor afternoon for students and staff working in health and social care to learn about the work of the hospice. You can find more information and a list of dates on our Professional Visitors page
