Girls are Prize Winners at Bolton Hospital Pathology Day
Thursday, 22 November 2012
Year 12 Biology Students from Bolton School attended a National Pathology Day event at the Royal Bolton Hospital and came away with two prizes!
Sharron Grey from the Royal Bolton Hospital came into Bolton School to present the girls with their prizes. In the ‘Blood Grouping Quiz’, Deborah Wilson was a clear winner with 100 percent correct answers! She received a copy of ‘An Introduction to Biomedical Science in Professional and Clinical Practice’. Paloma Shakouri won the ‘guess how many hand gels in the jar’ competition run by the infection prevention and control team, guessing the correct amount of 56. Paloma won a £10 M&S voucher.
Paloma and Deborah commented: “The day started with a presentation by specialists from many different areas of Pathology; for example Haematopathology, Clinical Pathology and Microbiology. They explained the basics of their field and what their work involves on a day-to-day basis. We found this very interesting - we hadn't known that Pathology could vary so much and it prompted a lot of questions! Fortunately, we had the opportunity to ask these questions after the presentation when different pathologists had stalls set up and displayed further information. We had the opportunity to chat with them about their jobs. This was really useful and informative as they were all really enthusiastic and told us everything they could about their field of work. Overall, we really enjoyed a very interesting and worthwhile afternoon.”
