Students and parents from local secondary schools and colleges were given behind the scenes access and expert demonstrations from teams at East Surrey Hospital in an inspiring careers event this week.
Local students in year nine or above were invited to our ‘meet the practitioner’ careers event on Tuesday 21 November.
They were able to watch demonstrations from doctors, nurses and therapists in the simulation suite, learn life-saving CPR techniques in ‘re-start a heart’ style workshops and attend a range of presentations about different careers in healthcare.
Becky, 16, from Horsham, said:
“It was very beneficial to have the opportunity to talk to people who are doing the job that I am aspiring to do, and it was interesting to hea about the volunteering and work experience available”
