The NHS

Overview

During this lesson pupils will learn about the founding of the NHS and the guiding principles upon which it was established. Pupils will explore a variety of scenarios in which someone might use the NHS and identify the different services which are offered in these circumstances. They will then have the opportunity to explore case studies of NHS employees, gaining an appreciation for the different skilled positions and first-hand accounts of working for the organisation. The lesson concludes with pupils exploring some real-life examples of people taking action to support the NHS. Pupils are challenged to think of the different ways they could support the NHS now and in the future.
