    Does any one know what areas some one can work in when they're in a hospital and under 15? I can't find it anywhere. :confused: Thanks.

    I did work exp in my local hosp when I was 14. There is usually someone who deals with work experience - call up the main switchboard of the hosp and ask for them. Then when you're through to them tell them your age and that you want work exp.

    I got put on a ward for 2 weeks and did things like cleaning the patients tables, typing up handwriten documents, unpacking and putting away syringes/medicines, taking samples to the blood bank...

    There's plenty to do!

    Thanks, I already have the number so that should be quite straight forward.

    I did a week at a hospital when I was 14! Under 16s are not allowed on the wards at my local hospital - at all. So instead I was in the offices. Typing, scanning. Not the best experience, but anything is appreciated!

    I think it depends on the polcy of your local trust. I would be very surprised if you would be allowed in clinical areas ~ but as others have said you can do back office stuff.
