Students scrub up to learn about operating theatre life

  • Comment
No, surgeons aren’t getting younger – these students (shown with practice educator Jill Mordaunt) are learning about operating theatre life at Liverpool’s Aintree University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

As part of an eight-week course about NHS life, students from All Saints High School, Kirkby, will also learn about first aid, food hygiene, team-building and jobs in the NHS.

Lorraine Thomas, theatres education manager at the trust, said: ‘Giving pupils the chance to dress in scrubs really gets them talking, helping them learn what perioperative care is all about.’

The course for 13- and 14-year-olds is a result of a partnership between the trust and the Skills Academy for Health Northwest.
