I just finished my first year of medical school and im looking to work as a bank health care assistant for the summer. I'm a little apprehensive but i've heard it provides good experience.
How exactly would i go about getting the Job?

There are a number of routes you can go about it. NHSP is the NHS agency and you can pick up around £40 for a shift. You get to choose which wards and shifts you want to work and I know many doctors who worked as HCAs when studying. I myself do NHSP as well as my regular, full-time work as a HCA. http://www.nhsprofessionals.nhs.uk/Pages/home.aspx There is the website to join.
There are also private agencies that you can go for. More money but not sure how much freedom there is in choosing where to go.

I just contacted my local hospital and the operator put me through to the bank office. The rest is history as they say...
Good luck x
