Twenty students were selected from schools across Staffordshire and Shropshire to attend South Staffordshire and Shropshire Healthcare’s popular Aspiring Doctors Programme, now in its fifth year.
The programme is open to students aged 14+ who are considering a career in medicine. It aims to inspire and inform them about psychiatry, providing useful information on how to pursue this career option and gain a basic understanding of what it is like to work as a doctor in mental health services.
Over 160 service users, carers, staff and partners came together yesterday to celebrate the impact of involvement at South Staffordshire and Shropshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.

Professionals working with children and young people in South Staffordshire and Shropshire will now be in a better position to help people with eating disorders access early treatment, thanks to upcoming training sessions run by Beat.

Beat has partnered with South Staffordshire and Shropshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (SSSFT) to increase local knowledge of eating disorders and improve access to early treatment by training local professionals.
