Throughout Covid, the Careers teams across Lancashire and South Cumbria have been working closely on creating an employability platform aimed to inform and inspire NHS careers within the local communities across their areas.

There are 5 Hospital Trusts that have been involved in the creation of this resource –

  • Lancashire Teaching Hospitals (us)
  • University Hospital of Morecambe Bay
  • Blackpool Teaching Hospital
  • East Lancashire Teaching Hospital
  • Lancashire & South Cumbria NHS Trust

They are pleased to launch this platform therefore please see the links to access - www.NHScareersnw.co.uk or www.NHScareersnw.com 


They will be running various employability programmes through this platform and there is information provided surrounding all types of jobs, work experience, volunteering and vacancies concerned with the Trusts involved.

Medical Work Experience Week

An important part of applying to Medical School is preparation and making sure you're organised. We encourage our pre-medical students to make the most of their time by gaining lots of medicine insight and work experience, ready for their personal statements and interviews.

A great start to their experiences could be our in-person Medical Work Experience Week in London which includes:

  • NHS Doctor & medical student teaching.
  • A & E hands-on simulations using Medical Manikins.
  • Simulations to develop skills for medical school e.g. teamwork / communication skills / decision making / working under pressure.
  • Practical clinical skills r.e. cannulation / taking blood.
  • Application advice for Personal statements, entrance examinations, medical school insight.
  • Mock MMI Interviews with personal feedback. 
  • Accommodation with breakfast and dinner in London.

We still have spaces on our October course from 24th October to 30th October 2021.
