Equality and diversity
We are committed to equality and diversity and believe that celebrating the diversity of our staff is essential to our success and enables us to meet the diverse needs of our patients, the communities we serve and our staff.
Training and development
We provide learning and development opportunities for all staff both professionally and personally. We recognise that continuing professional development and life-long learning are key to delivering high-quality patient care.
An elective can provide an insight into a specialist area not offered by your course. It can help you gain extra experience/skills for your CV, for example, organising your own placement can demonstrate proactivity, planning or negotiation skills, making sure you develop useful employability skills during the placement itself, for example problem solving, flexibility and resourcefulness.
"I just wanted to email to say thank you for facilitating my placement at Mildmay. Over my short time here, I've learnt how to support two patient groups with which I had had very little contact previously. Supporting these patient groups has been complex and left me reflective at times, but many of my encounters with patients and staff have been uplifting and I've witnessed an atmosphere of positivity and hope. The holistic multi-disciplinary care at Mildmay has been very impressive and a lifeline to patients.
I wanted to find an elective which would help me to challenge myself and you have given me exactly that and more. As I progress into my final year, I will take with me what I have learned at Mildmay. In Scotland, we have Waverley Care which is a Hep C and HIV charity that operates Milestone House in Edinburgh- the closest equivalent I can find in Scotland! This experience has inspired me to seek volunteer opportunities within this charity.
Finally, I have discussed this placement with my friends and family, and I have recounted this quote many times as I believe it fits Mildmay-
“the true measure of any society can be found in how it treats its most vulnerable members.” - Gandhi.
All the best to staff and patients"
