Young People’s Event

Each year (around June) the Membership Team hosts a Young People’s Open Day.  Over the years, around 2,550 young people with their teachers, friends and parents have attended and not only gained an insight into our organisation, but also discovered more about career opportunities in the NHS, volunteering and work experience in our hospitals in addition to receiving health and well-being advice from our health experts. If you would like to find out more, please contact the Foundation Trust Membership Office.
