Mersey Care is keen to promote medicine as a speciality amongst students and is promoting careers in medicine/psychiatry placements for students - as early as sixth form. Ben is currently studying in college and considering a career in medicine so he approached the Trust early in 2018. Guidance was produced by the Trust’s Medical Education Team around such placements, the placement was organised and Ben was supervised by Dr Williams in Southport. Following his placement, Ben wrote to thank Mersey Care “I would like to thank you for organising my placement at Southport. I was able to take part in home visits and clinic meetings as well as ward rounds. This enabled me to see first-hand how psychiatry differs from conventional medicine. The placement has helped me to gain a valuable insight into how mental health amongst the elderly and as a whole in the UK is a rapidly-growing field.”
