NHS Dumfries and Galloway welcomed 16 young people to its Modern Apprenticeship programme this month.

The latest intake took part in a rigorous assessment and interview process which tested their commitment and potential. They will take up their new roles in departments across the organisation in October and will complete vocational qualifications covering specialisms such as business and administration, life sciences, finance and patient care.

Workforce Development Partner, Natalie Morel, is a key contact for the Modern Apprentices. She said: “We are lucky to have found such an amazing group of eager young people who are about to start exciting new careers with NHS Dumfries and Galloway. This is our future workforce and they have important roles to play in supporting the development of our services.”
