Students get a taste of hospital technology February 5th, 2014 admin Latest News Shares Comments Students get a taste of hospital technology Information technology makes the world go round and nowhere more importantly than in the field of health care. Year 11 pupils from Bishop Rawstorne Church of England Academy at Croston, near Ormskirk, are studying IT in hospitals for one of their exams this summer and heard first-hand about the subject from Luke Twigger, Head of IT at Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust. “To put this learning into context I asked Luke if he would give a presentation on how the Trust uses IT and how vital it is to their work”, said Barbra Webber, lead teacher for computing. “The pupils were delighted with the visit and found the presentation extremely useful to help with their learning for this exam.” Luke added: “This is an exciting year for the Trust as we make major upgrades to our IT systems which should bring big improvements for patients and staff. It was great to share some of our thinking with the next generation of potential IT specialists.” Picture above shows Lottie Davies demonstrating video conferencing technology with fellow pupils Oliver Dillon, Cameron Harrison and John Farnworth during their visit to Ormskirk hospital Submit News Contact us with your community, business or sport news.
