Work experience opportunities in primary care
As well as completing work experience in hospitals, there are hundreds of GP practices across the north east who offer work experience in a primary care setting. This will offer you the opportunity to gain an insight into the role of a GP as well as other staff in the clinic such as nurses or allied health professionals.
You will learn how each GP clinic is run to cater for a variety of patients and illnesses. We have produced some information on finding work experience opportunities in primary care and have also compiled a list of GP practices in the area who will consider taking students.
