Pupils at Wallace High School in Stirling were able to hear first hand about a career in the health service thanks to several members of our staff.
John Smith, Professional Adviser for Orthotics, Christopher Mulraney, Community Psychiatric Nurse and Management Trainee Marjolein Don were involved in organising an NHS careers day. This was arranged in conjunction with NHS Education for Scotland and Skills Development Scotland as part of a Community Challenge following completion of an Emerging Leaders course. Other health professionals attending included Patrizia Henderson from Radiography at Forth Valley Royal Hospital.
The event was designed to showcase different careers in the NHS, enable young people to make informed decisions about chosen school subjects and make them aware of the opportunities and challenges of working in the health service.
