I’m a Medic, Get me out of here, will run for three weeks from Monday 21st January – Friday 8th February with two themed zones supported by NHS Health Education England; Primary Care Zone and Mental Health Zone.
Through your online profile, answering their questions, and taking part in live text-based chats, you’ll help school students see people in the NHS as people like them, and to see science and healthcare as relevant to their lives and future careers.
“Thank you so much for the opportunity to get to chat to so many engaging and interesting young people.” – Rob Cullum, United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust
It’s an exciting and accessible way to speak with young people about working in the NHS. Everything happens online so it’s easy for you and your colleagues to be involved right from your desks and at times that suit your schedule.
Apply now to take part!
The deadline is Monday 3rd December.

Primary Care Zone
This zone will show students it’s not just doctors who work at GP surgeries; there is a whole team of healthcare workers helping patients, from practice nurses to receptionists, each with an important role to play in the running of the practice. Teams (e.g. 4-5 staff representing a practice) and individual primary care providers from GPs, medical clinics, dental surgeries or allied health practices such as physiotherapy clinics are all welcome.
Mental Health Zone
This zone will feature people in the wide range of roles in Mental Health Services, for example, psychiatrists, social workers, nurses, occupational therapists, clinical psychologists, support workers, creative therapists and more. Colleagues and people from multidisciplinary teams are also able to enter the competition as a team — for example local Child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS).
