Students from across Peterborough join hospital staff for NHS Discovery Day

Discovery day

Students from across the local region have joined forces with staff at Peterborough City Hospital to learn more about various roles within the NHS.

Over 40 students from sixth forms and colleges including; Nene Park, Sawtry Academy, Ken Stimpson Community School, Peterborough Regional College, Jack Hunt and Neale Wade Academy were involved.

The students spent time at the Anglia Ruskin University, Peterborough Campus to find out about careers in the NHS before being given a tour around various departments around the hospital. Behind the scenes tours took place around the Pharmacy, Pathology, Diagnostic Imaging and Radiotherapy.

The day was organised by Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Collaborative Outreach Network and Anglia Ruskin University, with the aim to promote awareness of alternative careers within the NHS and raise aspirations for young people regarding applying to universities.

Joanna Bainbridge, Deputy Director of HR and Organisational Development, said: “Today has been a fantastic opportunity for our staff to show students what potential career choices are available not only within the Trust but in the NHS as a whole. We hope that the students feel inspired to pursue a career in the NHS and potentially one day they may work for us.”
