    (Original post by Canongon)
    Currently I work in an emergency gas service centre, and volunteer at weekends in a care home. I've only recently moved home to my tiny town and currently don't drive so jobs aren't that easy to come by!
    Got some hospital work exp in the pipeline though, and a few interviews coming up for HCA positions.
    Just trying to articulate how much I want to study medicine is difficult at the moment!

    Thank you all for the words of wisdom, means a lot!
    Ahh cool, yeah if you can get it then I'd defo recommend HCA work. The way I look at it (and I'm no expert, this is just my opinion), is that there are going to be ten other people trying to get that place. You need to do everything you possibly can to make yourself stand out. There is no such thing as too much work experience.
