Working in healthcare
A whole range of people at all levels care for our health when we need it.
You could work as a doctor, either in a health centre or in a hospital. As a nurse, you could work in a hospital or in the community. You might choose to specialise in one particular area of medicine, such as eyes, teeth, joints and muscles. You could work as a scientist or engineer in healthcare, for example analysing samples of blood or operating the hi-tech machines in hospitals. A relevant degree is not always required. If you have talent and work hard, you can gain the skills and experience employers are looking for.
