The Medical Physics department at County Durham & Darlington
NHS Foundation Trust is celebrating Healthcare Science Week by
opening its doors to anyone interested in finding out more about
their work and career opportunities in healthcare
The department at Darlington Memorial Hospital will be open on
Thursday 16th March from 1-5pm or visit University Hospital of
North Durham on Friday 17th March from 1-5pm and
everyone is welcome to come along for a look behind the scenes.
Robyn Cooke, Medical Physicist, said, "Scientists and engineers
in the NHS make a real difference to people's lives and this is an
opportunity for anyone to come along and find out more. We'll be
giving practical demonstrations and demystifying the work we
do. For example, not many people know that we use small
amounts of radioisotope tracers to find cancers or to see how your
internal organs work!
"Staff from the department will give interactive and fun
demonstrations. No appointment is necessary and the event is free.
Schools are also very welcome and we hope to meet some of the
scientists of the future."

ever and they were brilliant with me and I can't thank them enough
- could you please pass on my sincere thanks.'
