Clinical placements or visits

Willen Hospice offers a range of placements for both qualified and trainee health and allied professionals with an interest in specialist palliative care.

We are delighted to receive applications for placements at the Hospice. Please remember that it takes time to consider requests and put the necessary arrangements in place in a small organisation. Students should apply early in a placement so that we can meet your individual needs.

A variety of students working locally are welcome can come spend time at Willen to gain an awareness of its End of Life role. This could include allied health professions, Adult Care Nurses and Child Care Nurses.
