Cultivating the next generation of NHS heroes
With the 'Healthcare Horizons' programme, we're helping young people in east London take the first step into NHS careers in healthcare and health sciences.

Young students learn about the NHS with Healthcare Horizons
We’re dedicated to

Building the next generation of healthcare professionals and ensuring that all young people in East London have access to the same career opportunities, regardless of their background.

Did you know?
In the last report by the National Audit Office, the NHS was short of staff by 50,000 places. The problem grows every year, as recent figures from the Nursing and Midwifery Council show that more nurses are leaving the workforce than are joining.
The difference we’re making

We are supporting young people throughout their journey to a healthcare career, with initiatives tailored by age group:

  • Hands-on events and work experience placements for secondary school students
  • Immersive simulations of how an operating theatre works in the cutting-edge simulation suite at The Royal London Hospital for teenagers
  • Direct support and advice will be offered for students completing applications for university
  • Motivational training, interview skills development and regular events showcasing the range of available opportunities for young people getting straight into work

At Barts Health I’m always learning new life skills, and I think having exposure to real life situations will make it easier for me to secure jobs in the long run. I never realised my capabilities before working at Barts Health and I feel so much more confident.
