NHS: A Career in Surgery

For a number of months, our careers team and Mrs Noble, Medical Sciences Pathway Leader, have been working with the NHS theatre teams across Mid-Yorkshire to plan an event in which would give students an insight into different careers within surgery.

This event took place on Tuesday 23 January 2024, and saw more than 30 NHS professionals come in to school to provide a variety of workshops and webinars to more than 100 students. The day provided students with the opportunity to take part in mock interviews and a range of practical activities such as cannulation and venepuncture, suturing, the use of surgical instruments and dressing and drainage. They also learnt CPR, dressed in scrubs and played giant operation.

The event was an amazing opportunity for our students and we are very thankful to the WYAAT Hospital teams for choosing us as the launch school for an offering that will hopefully be rolled out across the country.
