    I've got a 3 month gp shadowing placement sorted out for the summer holidays. But I've got lots of spare time on my hands because of the university strikes, so I'd like to get some ambulance work experience. I looked at the St Johns' ambulance website but there's no opportunities in my city. Is there anywhere else I could look or any other types of volunteering I could get?

    Make sure you have some long term volunteering in somewhere like a carehome or other type of caring environment(maybe with children)
