    I am not sure what you would be able to do at 15 as there are issues of patient consent and confidentiality etc when working in healthcare settings.

    She is right, most places require you to be atleast 17 from when I did mine. I spent some time on the Wards doings rounds with a doctor. He had to ask every single pt if it was ok for him to have me along and even then a lot of the time we spent going over things like completing TTO's and other forms of paperwork

    You probably couldn't do anything medical but you could do some experience in a gp reception or hospital reception this gives you an idea of how things are run.
