Health Education England scheme ‘inspires children to work in the NHS’

Children as young as six say they will now consider a career in the NHS when they are older thanks to a Health Education England (HEE) pilot scheme, which aims to promote the breadth of careers available within the health service.

Over 2,000 children from 43 primary schools from across England took part in the scheme earlier this year and were provided with a range of educational resources that highlighted the variety of roles the NHS has to offer, from nurses and surgeons, to IT professionals and scientists.
