An exciting opportunity has come up for some of your senior pupils. The NHS are running a one day event on Tuesday 30th August 2016, which will be open to S5 and S6 pupils from schools across East Lothian and Borders. The day might be particularly useful for students considering a career in Medicine, Nursing, Life Sciences or undertaking Advanced Higher Modules in Medical Ethics.

Students will be given access to Specialist Nurses in Donation, Doctors in Intensive Care, Transplant surgeons and donor and recipient families. The professionals will give short talks / discussions on their roles / stories and answer any questions generated before rotating students to another workshop.
