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.
