Would-be medics on fact find­ing mis­sion

Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

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.”
