Open Day for Young People: Tuesday 24th June 2014

Young Peoples Event 2014 image

We will be holding our fifth annual event for young people aged 11-18, on Tuesday 24th June.  Young members and their families are very welcome to come along at any time during the day, to see the wide range of stands and activities and to meet some of our staff.

Staff from across our hospitals will be taking part in the event.  The aim is to show young people what happens in our hospitals, offer information about a wide range of careers in the NHS and provide advice about health and well-being.  We are also keen to give more young people a voice in the planning and delivery of health services by our Trust.

Based in the Nowgen Centre on Grafton Street (M13 9WU), the day will run from 10.00 am to 3.00 pm.  There will be opportunities to find out about jobs in the NHS, plus work experience and other 'taster' programmes at our Trust.  Experts from across the organisation will be running stands and talking about their jobs, in areas such as physiotherapy, pharmacy, IT and radiography as well as nursing, midwifery, medicine and research.

Young people can also get advice about staying healthy from our schools outreach staff, and there will be some hands-on activities including learning how to use a defibrillator and resuscitation techniques and the popular plastering team!
