During your course you’ll be taught the core skills and specialist knowledge needed to become a competent practitioner. What’s more whilst on work placements you’ll gain valuable experience in a range of healthcare environments within the NHS in hospitals and community placements, at private hospitals and at independent care providers.As well as learning how to work with patients, you’ll develop the skills required to assist the families of those who are ill, and will gain an understanding of the roles of other health professionals, allowing you to work effectively with colleagues from various backgrounds and specialisms to provide the best possible care.
