    Can anyone tell me where to go exactly or what do, do to get work experience in hospitals or anything that is relevant to worth mentioning when applying for medicine. Cuz the gps that I've gone say they can't take anyone with a car check so I've never done any work experience at all!!

    I’m having a very similar experience to you right now, I have to be 17 for nhs placements eughhh. If I were you I’d look for some care home placements or some sort of care related volunteering, this is extremely beneficial. I’m currently looking for some myself👍🏾

    I'm a medical student. When I was 16 I was working as a bank ward waitress in a hospital and as a care assistant at a care home on some weekends and during holidays. I also volunteered at a hospice.

    I also tutored young children. I think that work with children is quite a good option if you're struggling with finding medical jobs as it's people orientated and requires a caring nature and good communication skills. You could also try volunteering at a charity.

    Hope that helps
