Home-grown volunteers and interns get involved in the local NHS
Young people in Bradford are at the top of the local NHS’ agenda to get more people involved in volunteering, internships and work placements.
The Bradford clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) have already committed funding to support ways of increasing opportunities for young people to take up formal volunteering roles in local health services.
The CCGs’ ambition is to support more people to work in the local NHS to help build a stronger workforce for the future of the district and get important feedback from the young generation.
At its governing body meeting on 14 February, Bradford Districts CCG will hear how volunteering and work placements in the NHS are making a real difference and bringing benefits to both services and the young people involved.
