Student placements

Willow Wood Hospice welcomes students including: medical, nursing, physiotherapy and counselling on various placements

A placement with the Hospice provides an opportunity to experience the multidisciplinary team approach to holistic patient – centred assessment of symptoms, and management option, including psychological and spiritual support, complementary therapies, as well as conventional methods of care.

The Hospice understands reflection is an important part of growth as a healthcare professional, so students are encouraged to join decision making discussions, where clinical situations, with many possible treatment options, are considered. There will also be opportunities to meet patients staying in Inpatients, in our Outpatient clinics, and in the Day Service START Clinic, as well as to meet the extended Palliative Care Team of Tameside and Glossop.
