Our September 16 Operating Department Practice students recently visited our site at Alder Hey Institute in the Park for a ‘Patient Transfer’ session.

With great reviews from both staff and students who attended, the session was very successful which even facilitated students performing CPR on the mannequin in an open corridor setting.

Trust staff commented on how ‘intriguing’ it was to watch the session take place, further commending that despite being highly intensive, the session caused very little disruption.

Our facilities at Institute in the Park provide a great space for staff to speak with students, hold meetings and facilitate team away days, with feedback commending how quiet and easy the space is to work within.

Group staff inductions and tours are being held in June 2019 and any staff who wish to book should contact Hayley, our Clinical Skills and Professional Support Co-ordinator based at Institute in the Park.
