Work experience


The Trust is monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation closely and we remain well prepared. However a decision has been made to suspend all work experience at Liverpool Women's NHS Foundation Trust with immediate effect to protect patients, staff, visitors, and work placement students. If you are due to attend a placement please do not attend. We will be reviewing this decision over the coming weeks and months. We will update this page in due course. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.

For details on other measures in place by the Trust relating to COVID-19 please go to this page:

The Liverpool Women's NHS Foundation Trust welcomes supports and encourages work experience.

Work experience introduces young people to the world of work and is a valuable and essential part of their education. 

The National Health Service has over 350 different careers, all working to contribute some part to patient care. Liverpool Women's NHS Foundation Trust has a variety of occupations to offer. Work experience students will be given the opportunity to observe our fantastic staff which will hopefully help them in deciding which career pathway they may wish to take.

For further information on current opportunities available and the knowledge, skills, training and experience required to work in these different careers, including any support that may be available to help you train, please visit the NHS Careers website.

Categories of work experience students

  • Those in school years 11
  • School students aged 16 and above
  • 16-18 year olds seeking relevant work experience to meet their university application requirements

The Liverpool Women’s NHS Foundation Trust will, where possible, support the placements of all categories of students, Monday - Friday between 9am and 4pm, however it is recognised that due to the nature of our business, work experience placements will be restricted to certain areas and specialties and the Trust will not be able to accommodate every request.

Work Experience students must be aged 16 or over to be placed in a clinical area. Please note that work experience students will be allocated to areas where they may get the chance to talk to different professionals but they cannot be allocated to an individual professional.
