Your tasks and activities will be according to the needs of the hospital at the given time. You will be playing a vital role in the continued development of the hospital and its region as a whole.

Not only will you be a part of its ongoing renovation and construction, you will also have the chance to assist in some mild nursing work, such as comforting patients, washing linen, gardening and assisting the porter. Although seemingly small, these are all important roles, vital to the successful running of the hospital.

Your interactions with staff members and patients will not only be beneficial for your development and experience, but it will also be good for the staff and patients who are always grateful for your friendly input!
