Wilton Scholars visit to NHS Transplant Centre

Year 11 pupils took part in a Liverpool College first on Tuesday when they were invited to attend a STEM focused event at the NHS Blood and Transplant centre in Speke.

As well as a guided tour of the facilities, pupils also participated in a range of hands-on, science focused events ranging from learning how to put on gloves without compromising sterility, to identifying tissue samples, to completing the Maths test presented to potential job applicants at the centre, to discussing the various careers within the Transplant field.

This is a truly fascinating area of medical science and one that pupils very rarely get to experience. Our thanks to Jo Galloway for arranging the event.
