Rotherham Collage of Arts and Technology visit

26 Aug 2011 16:42:29

Eighteen students from Rotherham College of Arts and Technology (RCAT) recently visited Rotherham Hospital to get an insight into the workings of the hospital and to meet some of the different health care staff that work in the organisation. 

The students, aged between 16 and 18, are currently studying a Health and Social Care course at RCAT and are hoping to pursue a career in this area. 

They had the opportunity to look around some areas of the hospital including an Orthopaedic ward (B2), a surgical ward (B5) and the hospital’s Stroke Unit. They were briefed on the hospital’s infection control procedures, were given the chance to take part in a ‘glow and tell’ Hand Hygiene session. They were even quizzed on their knowledge following a tour of the hospital. 

Organiser of the visit Mary Dougan said: “Their tutor at RCAT approached us about this tour following a very successful and informative visit last year. I think it was a great experience for these students and we were able to show them what working in a health care environment would be like. It’s great that the students were able to get a taste of life working in a busy hospital and the importance of the different departments working closely together. I want to thank all the people involved for making it such a good day.”
