Event description


The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust in association with Oswestry School are holding a careers in healthcare conference on Thursday 11 January 2018.

Building on the success of the medical conference held at Oswestry School in January 2016 we have developed a conference that allows pupils to explore the wide range of careers available within healthcare. From paramedic to orthopaedic surgeon; trauma nurse and anaesthetist to dietician and physiotherapist pupils will have the opportunity to see healthcare professionals at work and talk to them about how they got where they are.

The event will run from 9:00am to 3:30pm. Below is a provisional programme of events:

0930 Opening address

Mark Cheetham and Alison Sefton
