Two Health professionals, Alison, a patient safety midwife and Rachel an ICU (Intensive Care Unit) nurse visited our Year 12 and 13 Health and Social Care students to give a talk on their roles and responsibilities, day-to-day specific responsibilities. Students were impressed by these experiences and gained full insight in to what the career pathway entailed. See their comments below:
