Our HealthCare Academies give young people that are interested in pursuing a career in health care, the opportunity to gain insights into the things healthcare professionals do and learn about healthcare careers within the Trust.

We are working with local schools and colleges and have a number of academies planned each academic year..

Some of the topics we explore with students are:

  • Mental health, learning disabilities and physical health nursing
  • Hearing from psychiatrists, psychologists, allied health, health and wellbeing professionals
  • Learn basic skills used in healthcare, such as basic clinical skills, Infection Prevention and Control and risk assessment
  • Learn about key health priorities including healthy lifestyles and health promotion
  • Personal communication techniques, resilience and wellbeing
  • Apprenticeships within HealthCare and Career pathways.
