County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust is committed
to supporting 5 days work experience opportunities for young people
within the Trust's catchment area of Country Durham, using all
appropriate clinical and non-clinical areas to provide a broad
range of work based experience.
Recognition is given to the dual benefits of helping individuals
to gain insight and inform their choice of career pathway, as well
as promoting the Trust's involvement in community links. We also
recognise the need to manage this in a way that supports the
individuals and ensures patient safety and integrity.
Work experience requests are managed through the Learning and
Development administration team. Only work experience placements
which have been submitted via the Trust's website and online
application will be processed. Individuals cannot directly request

'As I was very, very nervous, I must have been the worst patient
ever and they were brilliant with me and I can't thank them enough
- could you please pass on my sincere thanks.'
