The NHS Virtual Allied Healthcare Work Experience offers a unique opportunity for aspiring healthcare professionals. It’s a rare occasion for students to hear from our exceptional guest speaker, Melanie Dalby, a pharmacist specialising in haematology and clinical academic research lead for pharmacy at King’s College Hospital.

Melanie will provide invaluable guidance to help these future professionals embark on their dream healthcare careers. Following Melanie’s talk, students will gain an intimate look at the healthcare industry in the LIVE virtual work experience, delving into diverse roles within allied healthcare and taking a closer look at patient care by following the journeys of two patients from incident through to treatment.

The NHS Allied Healthcare Work Experience is the largest programme for aspiring healthcare professionals, having successfully invited over 12,000 students to participate in its programme last academic year – many of which have gone on to study:

Occupational Therapy
Prosthetics and Orthotics
Speech and Language Therapy

Once registered, students will receive access to their virtual work experience portals. Better yet, every complete session comes with a Work Experience Certificate, and for those who complete the full 6-month programme, there’s a Highly Commended Reference – a golden ticket for their apprenticeship and UCAS applications.

Registration will start at 8:30am, with guest speaker Melanie Dalby from 9-10am, then the live work experience session starts at 10am, with an end at 5pm. Plenty of breaks are scheduled throughout.

Students can register at any time throughout the 6-month programme using the link below. We recommend booking early to gain as much out of this programme as possible.

Places are £10 a session to cover administrative and technological costs, or £50 for the full 6 months:
