    hi everyone,
    I'm in year 12 and my school requires us to arrange some work experience for July, however I'm really struggling to find any that is relevant to medicine.

    I have begun volunteering in a care home and arranged some other experience shadowing a doctor, who is a family friend, however I have no other contacts who I could ask. I've looked on the website of a local hospital and emailed a few consultants, however they've all said they are unable to take me. I wanted to try and get some experience in a GP but I am unsure how to go about doing that as other people have tried GPs and have been rejected.

    The only people who have already arranged their work experience have been through family friends, but I don't have any

    Do you have a car/reasonable public transport available? If so, have you looked at hospitals other than your local one?
