Three Surbiton High School pupils won a London competition run by the NHS.

Ciara Fox, Tamsin Day and Noemie Pacatte impressed judges of the Step into the NHS schools' competition with their entry promoting the role of Accident and Emergency doctors.

They made a video telling a story about doctors in a fictional hospital, which won the London category of a nationwide competition that attracted more than 1,700 entries.

Dr Leah Rosenbaum, A&E junior doctor at Kingston Hospital, said: “It was a pleasure and a privilege to return to Surbiton High School, 12 years after my time as a student there, to present these talented and motivated young ladies with their prizes.

"Their video not only demonstrated their skill with multimedia but also their extensive research and understanding of the range of roles within the NHS. I hope to see them and many using these skills in years to come.”

The competition, now in its ninth year, is hoped to promote careers in health and social care professions.

Surbiton High School Principal Rebecca Glover said: “We are delighted to celebrate the fantastic achievements of our students, knowing that this national competition provides an unrivalled insight into the wide range of careers offered by the NHS.”
