Would-be medics on fact finding mission
ASPIRING medics got on-the-job training when they headed to Macclesfield Hospital.
The year nine students from All Hallows Catholic College were invited to the hospital to see the different parts of the NHS and how it operates.
They visited the hospital every Thursday and took part in a number of sessions, from alcohol awareness to speaking with the professionals.
They also learned about the ‘six Cs’ which are the core values of the NHS and covers care, compassion, courage, co-operation, competence and co-ordination, and tested what they had learned by designing their own hospital.
Bryn Price, from year nine, said he enjoyed learning about the different roles at the NHS.
He said: “Overall the course was a great learning experience, as well as a great addition to my future CV. I had fun, met many interesting people and learnt a lot about hospitals and all that they do.”
Charlotte Joyce, year nine learning leader, said: “This was an invaluable learning experience for the students. This learning outside of the classroom gave them a great understanding of various segments of the NHS and how an organisation operates.”
