Find us at the Norfolk Show

Several teams from across our hospital will be attending the Royal Norfolk Show at the end of June.

Our clinical research team including colleagues from the NIHR Norfolk Clinical Research Facility (CRF) will be attending alongside scientists from Quadram Institute Bioscience. You can find them in the STEMM village.

We will have three other healthcare science tables also in the STEMM tent. On 26 June there will be representatives from Audiology, Respiratory Physiology and Pathology. On 27 June, Pathology will be joined by colleagues from Bio-repository and Radiotherapy Physics.

Pathology will once again provide interactive displays and information on Haematology, transfusion, Chemistry and Microbiology. Last year they promoted an anti-spiking campaign which attracted a lot of interest.

John Fitzgerald, our Lead Healthcare Scientist, said: “The Norfolk Show is a great opportunity for healthcare science to promote the work it does in the Trust and to give students the opportunity to learn about how science is applied in the NHS to help diagnose and treat medical conditions. It’s also a great opportunity for students to talk to healthcare scientists to find out about training routes into the various healthcare science professions.”

The Norfolk and Waveney AHP Faculty will also be represented at the STEMM Village at the Royal Norfolk Show, promoting the fantastic work of our Allied Health teams both at the NNUH and across the ICS.  We are aiming to raise awareness of all our amazing Allied Health Professions, talk about the work they do and encourage people to consider the wealth of career opportunities that are available.  Physiotherapy, Dietetics and Occupational Therapy will be represented on Wednesday 26 June and Operating Department Practice, Speech and Language Therapy and both Diagnostic and Therapeutic Radiography on Thursday 27 June.  Members of the AHP Faculty will be there to support on both days.  Come and visit us and encourage anyone considering a healthcare career to come and chat, we will always try and provide as much help and advice as we can.

Some of our Head and Neck cancer team will also be in the STEMM village. They’ll be spreading awareness for people with tracheostomies and head and neck cancer. The team will be joined by Ellen Goodwin, our Sustainability Manager, who will discuss how we manage waste and recycling.

The N&N Hospitals Charity will also have a stand alongside members of the Jenny Lind Children’s Hospital, which is marking its 170th anniversary.
