More NHS70 talks after the summer holidays!

23 July 2018

Stephen Powis, National Medical Director of the NHS

In March, we launched a new initiative with the NHS to celebrate their 70th birthday. As part of the campaign, senior leaders from the service signed up to give a series of school talks to provide an insider perspective on what it’s like to work for the NHS and to unearth the fantastic array of career opportunities within the nation’s largest employer.

So far, more than 40 senior NHS professionals have spoken in schools as part of the campaign, with many more still set to give talks after the summer break.

We’ll be returning after the holidays for more talks as part of this series. In the meantime, you can see highlights from this campaign so far.

Don’t forget that your school can still get involved in the campaign too. Find out more about resources on our campaign page.

Schools can also find out more about the lesson plan ‘Knowing your NHS’ and online resources for teachers and educators by visiting:
