WHAT is it like to work for the National Health Service in Suffolk?

Visitors to next week's Suffolk Show will have an opportunity to meet people from across the county working in many of the lesser-known areas of healthcare.

Occupational therapists, physiotherapists, operating department practitioners, medical secretaries and staff from neonates and NHS hotel services will be among those manning Stand 297.

Jo Burrows, Suffolk's healthcare careers adviser, said: "We're bringing this cross section of staff to the show as a way of demonstrating the tremendous choice available.

"At the same time we aim to get across that NHS pay and conditions are good, and our flexible working hours allow people to meet their family commitments.

"This has resulted in many experienced staff returning to work after a career break.

"The county show provides a great opportunity for people to meet our healthcare professionals and chat to them in a relaxed and informal way. I hope many will call in."

Visitors to the NHS stand will also be encouraged to try a number of interactive demonstrations during the two-day event on June 6 and 7.
