The health and care sector is the largest employer across the UK, employing over 3 million people across more than 8,500 organisations. Needless to say, when looking for opportunities to assist with your career choices, navigating your way around the system can be difficult.

Our Dorset have brought together NHS partners from across Dorset to deliver  a series of virtual work experiences, giving you a local insight into  a wide range of programmes from medicine, nursing, midwifery and allied health professions and more to come.

To compliment this series we have compiled a library of useful links to signpost you to further reading materials and inspiring videos.
