Clinical Placements & Visits
Pre-registration nursing placements are provided at Garden House Hospice Care in association with the University of Hertfordshire and Anglia Ruskin University alongside short term placements for Medical, Nursing, Paramedic and Allied Health Professional Students. These are usually arranged through the associated training provider but informal enquiries regarding elective placements, 'Return to Nursing' students and medical placements are also welcomed,
One-day Clinical visits are also very popular and are available for all members of the multi-disciplinary team. Placements are held on the first Tuesday and the third Thursday of every month. This offers professionals the opportunity to see all the departments in action and spend time gaining an insight into the holistic care offered by the hospice.
Individualized placements at other times may be available following discussion with the education team.

"A very informative visit, especially having talks from each area of the hospice including Hospice at Home , OT, Physio, nurses and complementary therapists. I would highly recommend the experience for future students to gain an insight into palliative care and the services on offer to patients"
