Aintree University Hospital NHS Trust has developed an online student placement choose and book system, where students from all disciplines can select and book spoke placements. Placements are available for spokes (one to four weeks) and short visits (from a few hours up to five days). These opportunities supplement their main hub placements and lend themselves to broader learning experiences.
