Occupational Therapy Summer Experience

Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016

    Anyone got any advice on how to get occupational therapy work experience or elective placements?
    I have had three placements, and requested neurorehabilitation for all three, but haven't got it. My next placement will be psychosocial.
    I am desperate for some experience in neuro/stroke rehab, as its what I would love to do once I have graduated.
    There aren't many jobs as a support worker/therapy assistants (I've signed up to job alerts!), and I would be willing to do free work experience over the summer.
    Is just emailing hospitals around my local area (E. sussex and London) my only option? I know networking is a good option, but conferences are very expensive to go to!
    P.s. my lecturers don't have any other suggestions either!
