Thank You NHS!

3rd May 2018

Students presented more than 70 thank you messages to NHS staff working to interest young people in a career in health or social care.

The tributes were paid at a “Thank You NHS” afternoon organised by students of Cheshire College to herald the NHS’ 70th birthday in July. The presentation was made to representatives of Cheshire Career and Engagement Hub, hosted by East Cheshire NHS Trust (ECT).

By inspiring people of all ages to consider working in the care sector, the hub is helping build a sustainable workforce – seen by Caring Together as a key enabler of joined-up care.

Alison Langley, career hub co-ordinator for Central and Eastern Cheshire, said: “As we celebrate the NHS’ 70th birthday on 5 July and look to the future, there’s never been a better time to raise the profile of careers in this rewarding and diverse sector.

“Whether it’s young people at school or college, job seekers, veterans or people considering a career change or return to practice, the hub can provide engagement opportunities and the information required for local people to start building their own career in health or care.”

Activities carried out by the hub in March included collaborating with North West Ambulance Service to promote International Women’s Day with a series of talks in Cheshire schools. The hub also supported National Apprenticeship Week and Health Care Science Week with stands at career events at Birmingham NEC and Event City Manchester.
