A health organisation was taken over by Nailsea students as they were given a taste of life in the sector.

Nailsea School pupils took over digital communications for Healthwatch North Somerset and spoke to the public about their views on health services during a takeover challenge.

The event was held at Tower House Surgery and pupils were asked to gather and analyse views from patients and carers.

They also researched and distributed social media posts on health-related topics to learn how Twitter can be used in a professional context.

Nailsea School events officer Annette Watts said: “This is a fantastic project where students can gain work-related learning in the health and social care sector – an area that can be difficult to secure work experience placements.

“We very much appreciate the Healthwatch team offering this valuable opportunity to our students.”
