The NHS are running virtual work experience on 6 June 2021, for allied health careers such as:

- Dietetics
- Radiography
- Prosthetics and orthotics
- Speech and language therapy

"During the work experience day, students will follow 2 patients from their initial presentation to recovery. Students will observe the healthcare professionals as they interact with the patients and and also each other. Students will have an opportunity to ask questions and gain knowledge through teaching. This will help students to make an informed career decision as well as learn about how healthcare professionals work together as part of a multidisciplinary team. Each work experience day is completely different and students will be able to build on their knowledge of NHS careers as they see different patient cases and their healthcare professionals work in a variety of settings, such as hospital and community."

If interested, please speak to your Pupil Support Leader.
