West Lancashire College Visit

Fresh from Dragon’s Den


West Lancashire College hosted “Operating Theatre Live” on 29th October and 9 of our students were lucky enough to attend.

The experience, fresh from BBC’s Dragon’s Den covered an introduction to medicine through a real surgical experience in an operating theatre.

Students had the opportunity to learn about the communication skills required to interview patients and how infection control works. They measured and prepared anaesthetic solution whilst learning the difference between general and local anaesthetic before administering the solution using the IV method.

A favourite part of the day for our students was the various dissections they took part in! With dissections on the brain, spinal cord, optic nerves, trachea, heart, lungs and diaphragm amongst some they completed.

This was a fantastic opportunity for some of our aspiring DRs, Vets and Midwives to gain experience in a live medical setting and they learnt so much from the experience. The aim of encouraging them to take part was to inspire them to continue to work hard in their studies and go on to achieve their chosen careers.
