    Hi, so I'm a Year 12 student and I'm now looking at places to do some work experience and have found a couple GPs near me that I could ask. As the title says, do i need to hand in a CV and a cover letter to the GPs when I go there?

    And I guess another question would be what would I say? Would something along the lines of "Hi, I'm in Year 12/I'm 16 and would like to gain some medical work experience. I'm wondering if I could get some experience here" be ok?

    Thank you in advance

    Hi...
    Yes, make sure you send it to the Practice Manager and not the individual doctors.

    Bear in mind that a lot of practices are very busy and may "ignore" your request. Have you thought about hospital work experience - they are usually organised by the hospital / medical schools so it may be easier to get into.

    Ah ok, thanks
    My local hospital has a work experience programme but I can't apply until January
