Students from Jack Hunt school joined staff at Peterborough City Hospital for Take Over Day on 7 February as part of their work experience.

A total of 20 students from Jack Hunt School took part in Take Over day, which enables the students to gain an insight into the area they are interested in and give them experience in their chosen role within the healthcare profession.

The students worked in Radiotherapy, Radiography, Physio, Pharmacy, Cardiac Ward, Maternity and Pathology.

Nikki Davis, Widening Participation Officer at North West Anglia Foundation Trust, said: “This will be the 7th year of working with Jack Hunt School to host Take Over Day. Every year Take Over Day becomes more popular among the students and it is encouraging to see so many young people interested in working within the health profession. Our staff really enjoy showing the students what it is like to work in the varying departments and give them the opportunity to gain a better insight into what they would like to do in their future career.”

Chris Game, Assistant Headteacher at Jack Hunt School, said:  “Our students always look forward to being able to experience a variety of roles at Peterborough City Hospital. This is a fantastic opportunity for them to gain first-hand experience in a career that they may be considering in the future. Thank you to everyone involved at the hospital for supporting our Take Over Day and working with our students."
