The Trust is hosting their annual event to showcase the diverse careers in medicine that young people in Cumbria can follow.

It will take place on Friday 5th and Saturday 6th of July 2024 at the Cumberland infirmary and will give those school students in years 11-13 the opportunity to speak to a range of medical professionals about what it is like to work for the NHS.

Dr Louise Buchanan, Consultant Cardiologist & Medical Director Professional Standards is leading the event and said:

“This is a fantastic opportunity for those considering medicine to ask anything they would like to know and get hands on experience from our experts.

“Medical experts from a range of services including intensive care, orthopaedics, cardiology, maternity and surgery will be available to answer questions and give the students the opportunity to try their hand at simulation training including delivering babies, inserting cannulas, fixing fractures, perform CPR and check for suspected cancer.”

Students from across all secondary schools in Cumbria are invited to book a place for the day. Students will require confirmation from their head of sixth form will be required to demonstrate the grades they have received so far. For more information, please contact Hayley Nugent via email
