Our staff tell their
real life stories

Students who are already set on pursuing a career in healthcare can benefit from our innovative, hands-on Dare To... workshops that take place at the Great Western Hospital each summer. 

Dare to Doctor, Dare to Nurse and Dare to Deliver give young people a glimpse into what a career as a doctor, nurse or midwife is really like before starting their university studies. 

Each workshop sees students get to grips with clinical procedures and techniques in the Great Western Hospital's Simulation Suite, while also shadowing real healthcare staff and attending question-and-answer sessions with senior clinicians. 

There are also sessions which give advice on how to apply for university and mastering the admission interview.
