Big Bang North West 2017: Sensational Science & Saving Lives with Health Education England North West
“It was a pleasure to be part of and represent the Health Sector at The Big Bang North West 2017. The atmosphere was fun and engaging and all of our exhibitors really enjoyed the experience.”
“The young people we met during the day were full of enthusiasm and excitement – wanting to learn more about different career pathways within health; they took part in all of the activities that our stands had to offer. The Big Bang North West was an excellent opportunity for us to help inspire our future health sector workforce; making the connection between what is being studied at school and how these subjects can come to life in the world of work.” Danielle Oakford, Engagement & Liaison Officer – Merseyside Health Sector Career & Engagement Hub
