"Put off work experience"

My 17 year old son is studying Health and Social Care at college. He recently sent an application form in to apply for general work experience on the wards at East Surrey.
He spoke with someone in the hospital by phone regarding this and I was shocked to hear them tell him that they had shredded his application form. He was told he needed to specify a ward, or he could give negative feedback on the form if he didn't like working on that ward. He was also told they were very busy - in other words don't waste my time!
This is a shocking way to treat students.
