    I've just been told by a hospital in England that my application for work exp has been successful, but I'd have to get flights and things... I didn't really expect it to be successful and now I'm frantically looking at flights and don't know if I'll be flying over by myself or what

    Letter to the practice worked for me! If you can find out who the office manager/practice manager is, they're probably the best person to write to.
    You can look a practice's details up at http://www.nhs.uk/servicedirectories
    thanks lol , you are the best!

    Best way to contact GP's?
    i just called up a surgery in the area, spoke to the receptionist and she put me on the gp's call list for the end of the day... next thing i know he phones me up and asks me whether i'd like to do it the week after just phone up and ask, there's nothing to lose.

    :giggle: A lot of sucking up to do :p: I'd be more worried about accommodation if I were you :p: Where abouts is this, just curious.


    I'm still looking for a place to work. Anyone know any place in London that I could call up? Much appreciated if someone could point me somewhere

    Up in Scotland it has become quite difficult to find work experience if you are a mature applicant... I'm going to write a general letter and send it to a hundred places this year. I WILL FIND WORK EXPERIENCE.
