I am fifteen and I am applying for doctor's assistant in one of the biggest hospitals in Africa. And top 5 biggest hospital in the world. I wish to become a doctor so I want to start now. I was rejected on the basis that they don't want to put me in risk of the pendemic but I can start next year. So at the mean time I work for a pharmacy and Catholic church. I know this was not your question but it is what it is. 😘

I'm a maternity support worker and the qualifications I have r health social care and childcare. We hv 2 nursery nurse on the postnatal ward who help with baby care, breastfeeding, sessions with parents and they work on two wards: postnatal (after women give birth) and neonatal. I don't know what happens on neonatal.

I work alongside them and You don't rlly need experience as full training given but I recommend experience to see if you enjoy. They need to have childcare qualifications.
