In a bid to boost recruitment for the next generation of NHS staff, health and education organisations from across Hull and East Yorkshire have come together to produce ‘A Day in the Life of the NHS’ for the third year in a row. A Day in the Life of the NHS is an innovative and interactive event for local students to find out what it is like to work in the NHS, and to learn about the wide range of careers available.
Following the success of 2015 and 2016, this year A Day in the Life of the NHS is set to be the biggest to date and will for the first time take place over two days, with 130 year 8 students from six different schools expected to take part.
Students will enjoy a number of different scenarios and activities throughout the day, learning about the jobs and careers in each scenario and how to achieve these. Scenarios will include donning scrubs and stepping inside a simulated operating theatre, following the rehabilitation of a complicated leg break, learning about the different roles of prison health services and looking at how people are affected by mental health at different ages.
