Young people are being helped into a career in healthcare thanks to a new course.
East Coast Community Healthcare (ECCH) is working in partnership with The Prince's Trust to offer training to unemployed young people from Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft who are keen to work in the sector.
The social enterprise, which provides NHS community health services across Norfolk and Suffolk, has welcomed 12 people aged between 16 and 25 onto a month-long training scheme as part of The Prince's Trust Get Into Healthcare programme.
The training begins with classroom sessions. Delegates will then take up a series of three day placements with different ECCH teams spanning clinical services such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy and community nursing.
