‘A patient’s journey through the NHS’ – Isleham C of E Primary pupils scoop first
prize in regional Health Education England careers contest.
Abigail Jones and Ophelia Finlay from Isleham have been named the East of
England regional winners in an annual contest designed to bring awareness to the
range of roles within the NHS, and help encourage young people consider a career
in the sector.
11 year-olds Abigail and Ophelia, pupils at Isleham C of E Primary School, created
a video animation of a drawing showing a patient’s ‘journey’ through the NHS.
The incredibly detailed video showcases the various roles and departments in the
NHS, and how they link into patient care. The video can be found here.
Health Education England (HEE) runs the Step Into The NHS competition in
primary schools each year to highlight the many career paths in health and care.
This year’s competition saw an impressive 1,428 entries from more than 1,800
pupils in 96 primary schools throughout England. As well as learning about some
of the 350 careers in the NHS, pupils had chance to say thank you to the NHS in
their own personal and creative way.
Winners, Abigail and Ophelia said:
“Winning the regional award was not something that I thought could happen, but it
was an exciting project to do with my friend and I feel very proud to have
represented my school.”
“I have really enjoyed doing this project with my best friend, Ophelia. My
favourite part was finding out about all the different roles in the NHS, and the
different career opportunities available. We were really surprised when we found
out that we were the regional winners, because we just entered for fun, but we’re both really proud of our work”.
