Facilitator: Caroline Boot, Primary Schools Project Lead
Presenter: Hayley Hartley, Schools Engagement Lead
Guest Diagnostic Radiographer: TBC
Does your average primary schooler know who takes an x-ray? Is it a doctor? Is it a nurse? No, it’s a Radiographer.
Join us for a fun, engaging and age-appropriate event designed to spark interest and contribute to raising aspirations towards an exciting career opportunity that children might otherwise not be aware of. Find out how a radiographer can use different equipment to look inside a patient’s body to see if they are hurt or poorly. See how babies can hiccup or suck their thumb before they are even born.
During the live-stream event children will:
Meet a jobholder
Learn about X-ray and Ultrasound
Have the opportunity to raise questions to the presenter
Sing, dance and have fun
The event is hosted by the Society of Radiographers in collaboration with the Schools Team for NHS and Social Care Careers at South Yorkshire Integrated Care System.
As a memento all schools booking onto the event will receive a complimentary copy of the children’s book “Isaac Visits the Diagnostic Radiographers”.
