I'm trying to write a CV for work experience at a hospital. What things should be included and what skills would be necessary?

Please bear in mind that you have to be at least 16 to do work experience in a hospital - I applied to do mine when I was in Yr 10 and it wasn't accepted, so I did it at Specsavers instead (and now I have a job there ). Ideally though, they want you to have an interest in medicine or healthcare, and be hard working, patient, friendly and mature, and have the ability to interact with a variety of people. I would mention which GCSEs I'm taking, my predicted grades and/or current grades and perhaps which A-levels I'm interested in (to show you've thought about and researched the future). I would also definitely include any clubs or councils you're part of, including extra-curricular activities, and any hobbies/sports you do.
Hope this helps!
