'A patient journey' - a toolkit for teachers
Developed by Health Education England in the North East, ‘A patient journey’ is a toolkit that can be used across the curriculum at key stages three and four.
By exploring the range of NHS roles that help patients in their care, the easy-to-use toolkit provides teachers with everything they need to deliver informative lessons with confidence.
“The really great thing is that it is seamless. I can use it as it is with very little preparation time. This is a real positive so ‘take it and run with it’!”

Accompanying the resources are 18 films, each exploring a different role in health. You can find all the films on this exclusive YouTube playlist below.
The toolkit has a range of resources that can be edited and expanded to meet your needs and promote careers in the NHS. Toolkit resources include:
- user guide
- Powerpoint presentation
- guide on using the presentation
- student worksheets
- teacher worksheets
- range of films (link to YouTube playlist)
- infographics (Danny's story, Edith's story, Harry's story, Carly and James', and Corporal Jed James' story)
We recommend starting with the user guide to help get an understanding of how the resources can be used in a learning environment.
