Placements

Placements within the NHS that provide vital clinical experience

 

Bringing real life situations to the overall training package will not only benefit the student but ensures the experiences learned will benefit future patient care.

All our placements are within NHS establishments and currently include: 2 major local NHS hospitals, NHS ambulance Services and Minor injury units.

With many more in the pipeline including GP surgeries and further urgent care centres.

All student will require an enhanced DBS (disclosure and baring service) check or have one that is not more than 6 months old (Medipro apply for this on your behalf). A health screening questionnaire will be completed as well as a local induction. All our students are fully insured whilst on placement and full support offered.

MediPro are also able to assist clinicians who want placements for specific reasons that are not part of our educational programmes, these may include:

  • Improve clinical practice/experience
  • Improve skill fade
  • Support existing educational programmes
  • Help to enter a professional register
  • Support any fitness to practice issues

Students get the opportunity to observe on one of our rapid response paramedic cars during their course.

The student will work with the paramedic responding to 999 calls to enhance their training and education by supporting real-life incidents. This is an experience you can’t find anywhere else.

Accommodation

There are a number of hotel options when visiting our centre. The closest of which is the Premier Inn (Preston Farm), but if you’re willing to stay only slightly further away MediPro students get exclusive access to great accommodation which includes free parking, a gym, sauna, swimming pool & on-site restaurant. All of this for just £50 a night, with breakfast included!

Testimonials

I completed my level 3 CERAD in March of this year, this was the third course I have done with Medipro in the last 14 months. In all of the courses I have done with Medipro I have found nothing but genuine, friendly, top class people. 

The level 3 CERAD was intense and challenging but Colin was excellent in his delivery, explanation and constructive criticism. 

Can not recommend MediPro enough, I have booked onto my Freuc 5 at the end of this year.  

Phil Brazier, Level 3 CERAD

Since graduating from my Sports Science and Injury Rehabilitation degree, I have been desperate to work in the healthcare industry, particularly emergency care. When I came across the MediPro ECA apprenticeship, I knew I had to apply. The opportunity to learn new skills, whilst gaining practical experience in the field, seemed too good to be true – but it has proven to be the opposite! 

The opportunity has not only allowed me to learn more about this complex profession, but grow in confidence as a person. The experience is designed in such a way that I was allowed to gain confidence in my ability, before increasing my responsibility. This was primarily done by working with other welcoming and experienced colleagues, who were all extremely helpful in guiding me through the process. The leadership and mentor team have been with me every step of the way, ensuring that I am well equipped to operate to the high standards that are required, whilst also showing great trust in me to put my skills into practice. 

MediPro has allowed me to access my dream career and have given me an experience so far that has ensured it will be a lifelong journey. 

Emily Bonham, ECA Apprenticeship, MediPro

Medipro is a very responsive apprenticeship training provider. They help us build and retain a very skilled, competent and patient care focused team of Emergency Care Assistants.

They also provide Paramedic training for Ambulance Technicians helping us to develop critical skills for our business.

The programme has helped us train and develop our workforce and has been extremely well organised and facilitated, and I am pleased to say that skills development goes from strength to strength.

We have found our working relationship with MediPro to be a very proactive one and we look forward/ to continuing to work together.

James Tavener
Training Manager, Bristol Ambulance EMS

MediPro have become a key support to our operations, helping us offer a safe, compliant and superior medical response service to our clientele. They have assisted us in the development of new competency programmes for our staff, new documentation flows for our patients and advised on new equipment and practices that improve our immediate treatment delivery. In addition, they have been a consistent and reliable source of guidance and advice throughout our work together. I would highly recommend their services which are operationally outstanding and financially very reasonable.

Peter Burke, Operations Manager, Teesside

I am a commercial Diver from Trinidad and Tobago.

I chose MediPro as it was recommended to me by a friend.

The teacher was very knowledgeable and made the lessons fun so it was easy to absorb. I am new to the Medical Diving field so it was very exciting learning more and going deeper into medical conditions and illnesses specific to diving. Being a diver, it will be a great asset for me to recognise and be able to administer aid should it be needed.

Kevin, Diver Medic Technician

I have been attending training at MediPro for 10 years. The offshore medic and distance learning refresher is great. Lovely people, great attitude, great educators.

Julian Searle
Offshore Medic Refresher
Distance Learning

The clinical placement in the unique Urgent Care Centre, North Tees Hospital, is exactly suited for the Offshore Medic course, allowing me to demonstrate all previous Learnt Theoretical, for urgent Primary care assessments in the field.

The mixture of GPs & Urgent Care Practitioner Nurses provided a 24/7 facility for a diverse range of presentations. I also spent time in the busy accident & emergency department.
