Nottingham University Hospitals (NUH) NHS Trust (Queen's Medical Centre and Nottingham City Hospital)


‘Not Just for Doctors and Nurses’

Our vision for the future of our hospitals is to become “outstanding in health outcomes and patient and staff experience.”  We’re based in the heart of Nottingham, operating from three locations and provide services to over 2.5m residents of Nottingham and its surrounding communities. We also provide specialist services for a further 4-5m people from across the region. We have 90 wards and around 1,700 beds. Our principle services are delivered from Queen’s Medical Centre, Nottingham City Hospital and Ropewalk House. 

An army of 16,000 staff and 1,600 volunteers keep Nottingham’s hospitals (QMC and Nottingham City Hospital) running 24/7, 365 days a year – many of them behind the scenes.

Work experience at NUH is an excellent opportunity to see what it is like to work in the NHS, and in an environment that you may not have had experience in before. You will be supervised by staff who already complete the type of work you are interested in, in the area you are visiting.

Work experience can vary from ‘tasters’ lasting just half a day to individual programmes over one or two weeks or more. Whilst some work experience placements offer a hands-on experience, others provide insights, observation and work shadowing.

If you are looking for a work placement related to your university course or post graduate study please contact the Human Resources Department at Nottingham University Hospitals on 0115 969 1169.

Unfortunately, due to a restricted number of available work experience placements, NUH can only provide placements for Nottinghamshire residents.

Various placements are available throughout the year. Please use the NUH directories below to browse through the placements available at either campus and complete and return the NUH application form (the return address can be found at the bottom of the form).
