Staff at Peterborough City Hospital welcomed students from Jack Hunt School to learn more about the various roles within the NHS.

A total of 19 students visited the hospital as part of Take Over day, which enables students to gain an in-depth knowledge in an area they are particularly interested in and help give them experience.

The students spent the day shadowing staff in Pathology, Pharmacy, Physiotherapy, Radiology and Radiotherapy to find out what a typical day in their role involved

Nikki Davis, Widening Participation Officer at North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust, said: “This is now our 8th year of working with Jack Hunt to host Take Over Day and we are thrilled that it remains just as popular with both staff and students. Our staff really enjoy showing the students what it’s like to work in their departments while giving them the opportunity to see what a career in the NHS could be like.”

Chris Game, Assistant Headteacher at Jack Hunt School, said:  “Take Over Day is a great way for our students to gain experience in a number of different sectors. The opportunities Peterborough Hospital provide are fantastic and are always very popular with our sixth formers. The insight they get into the health service means they are able to make really informed decisions about future career opportunities. Thank you to everyone at the hospital for supporting this day and making our students feel so welcome.”
