Therefore to work within the healthcare sector it is essential that you are able to demonstrate the core values embedded within the NHS Constitution: working together for patients, respect and dignity, commitment to quality of care, compassion, improving lives and everyone counts. Throughout the course, as part of the placement experience, you will be required to participate in a shift pattern rota or work weekends.
