Happy 60th Birthday, NHS

The School of Health is holding an Open Day on Saturday, 5 July 2008, to show how the NHS has changed over the past 60 years and to give prospective students the opportunity to find out about a range of health courses.
There will be opportunity for visitors to take a tour around the University’s clinical skills centres and see what a typical ward may have looked like 60 years ago and how one looks today. Visitors can speak to current students who will be the nurses of the future. There will also be a presentation about how the National Health Service started and how it has progressed over the years.
People will also be able to find out about the courses on offer, including nursing, midwifery, community health, complementary therapies and the ground breaking physician assistant studies.
Associate Dean Phil Begg, who worked as an audiologist during 1990s, said: “We hope prospective students will be inspired by the stories of our staff who have worked in the National Health Service during different eras.
“The School of Health is delighted to be able to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the NHS with an Open Day, and would encourage people interested in pursuing a rewarding career to come along on Saturday.”
The Open Day will be held in the Mary Seacole building, Wolverhampton City Campus, between 10am and 2pm. For further information, please call 01902 518811 or email
