North Bristol NHS Trust (NBT)
NBT offer our healthcare students a huge range of clinical placement opportunities – including specialist areas such as renal, neuro, burns, emergency and critical care. Many of our student nurses, midwives and allied health professionals find their clinical experience invaluable – and the majority choose to work at NBT after qualifying. With constantly evolving clinical needs, NBT work with us to offer innovative apprenticeship programmes that meet demand.
"We really value our close, collaborative relationship with UWE Bristol, where many of our clinical staff have studied. The partnership means that we can offer students excellent hands-on experience and wide-ranging employment opportunities in one of the South West’s biggest hospitals, as well as providing our existing staff with ongoing professional learning and development."
