Health Tec - Hands on Health on Health Visit

FOR KS5 STUDENTS ON THURSDAY 21ST AND FRIDAY 22ND MARCH 2019

Our KS5 students were able to enjoy a whole day at Aylesbury College taking part in the ‘Patient Programme Journey’ fully funded by Health Tec.

The students enjoyed a complimentary coach to and from Aylesbury College. They took part in the Patient Journey in the NHS including-

 

Introduction, Scenario Start, Abdominal Thrusts, Initial Assessments, Cardiac Arrests and Heart Attacks, Defibrillator Demonstration, Ambulance Experience, Ward Experience and Discharge.

 

They took part in simulated experiences including the immersive ambulance experience, the hospital ward experience and many practical activities.

 

The students were amazed to find out that there are 356 jobs within the NHS and learned how they can apply for some of these jobs.

A HUGE THANK YOU TO HEALTH TEC FOR ALLOWING US TO ATTEND THESE EXCELLENT PATIENT JOURNEY DAYS.
