Since the campaign began in 2018 our NHS Ambassadors have interacted with over 400,000 young people through Inspiring the Future. Become an NHS Ambassador and join the thousands of passionate NHS and HEE staff who are inspiring future generations to consider a career in Healthcare.
“Imparting my passion for working in healthcare and how much can be achieved in many different ways may open the minds of young people to explore the possibilities.” – Una Madill, NHS Ambassador
Health Education England (HEE) have teamed up with Inspiring the Future to get more NHS staff connecting with school children of all ages on a regular basis, talking about the breadth of interesting roles available and answering questions about their jobs. NHS Ambassadors take part in school activities such as assemblies, speed networking, career days and many more, alongside new virtual activities to connect with young people online.
