I'm hoping for a bit of advice if possible!
I've been working in admin roles for the NHS since graduating in 2008, however I've finally got the courage to retrain for a clinical position and ODP looks ideal!
I'm going to be starting an Access course in September, but wondering what others are doing to show they have been getting relevant experience? I'm trying to get some work experience in theatres. I'm also wondering whether it will be worth leaving my job (which I love!) and trying to get a HCA/HCSW role in an acute setting?
What do you think?!

Would you be interested in a Higher National Diploma inHealth and Social Care instead? The course is 2 years, equivalent to first and secondyear at uni. You can go on to continuewith a top up programme at university and get the full Bachelor’s degree after.It’s a great alternative to conventional university degree courses and supportedby Student Finance England. Excellent pathway towards Nursing, Social Work, TeachingPsychology, Sociology, Health Studies, Social Policy!
