South Tyneside NHS shares knowhow with workers of the future

Students at Whitburn Church of England Academy have received some expert training thanks to NHS South Tyneside Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG). Science teacher Vicky Lowthian reached out to the organisation on behalf of year 12 students enrolled on the academy’s Health and Social Care BTEC.

In response, the CCG’s Clinical Director, Dr Jon Tose, devised and delivered a bespoke training session designed to help the students understand how doctors and other health professionals diagnose various common medical conditions.  The full report can be found below:
