2017/18 winners of Step into the NHS schools' competition

We’d like to thank all the schools and students who submitted entries into the 2017/18 Step into the NHS schools' competition. The competition proved to be our most popular year to date and the judges were very impressed with the standard of the entries.

National winner

We’re happy to announce that the national winner of this year’s competition is Joe Kinsella from Keswick School.

Joe impressed the judges and managed to stand out from over 3500 students in order to be crowned overall winner. He created a unique and entertaining board game entitled 'Accidental Snakes and Emergency Ladders - The Game for Budding A and E doctors' which takes its players through the necessary training, qualifications, skills and qualities necessary for the career.
