The University of Hull will help pupils from Hull and East Riding schools and colleges experience the different roles the NHS has to offer at ‘A Day in the Life of the NHS’ event at Hull Royal Infirmary on Monday, 18 November.
The students will be taking a hands-on approach at the event – now in its fifth year – brought together by health and education organisations from across Hull and East Yorkshire at one of the region’s main hospitals, part of Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust. This event offers local students the opportunity to navigate six different scenarios, each showing how the roles within the NHS work together for the health and wellbeing of patients.
Professor Julie Jomeen, Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Hull, said: “Many of the nurses, midwives, physiotherapists, paramedics, doctors and those who care for people before, during and after surgery, operating department practitioners – will work in our region’s hospitals and will study here at the University of Hull. So we are delighted to play a part in raising awareness of all healthcare professions to pupils attending this special event.”
