StreetDoctors and Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust delivered a celebration ceremony for Health and Social Care students from Southwark College, following an eight-week education programme for young people to learn emergency lifesaving skills in an effort to support the safer communities initiative in Southwark.

The programme funded by Health Education England and run in partnership with StreetDoctors and Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, focuses on enabling young people to learn, share and teach emergency lifesaving skills.

As part of the Street Doctors graduation ceremony, a video was showcased to celebrate the students’ achievements over the weeks. Young people were also given the chance to share their experience on the programme and received certificates to celebrate their participation.

Nadira Rahman, Health and Social Care student at Southwark College, said: "I am so happy to have been a part of this programme, it has been an excellent experience for me and my classmates, and I am truly grateful.

"I have learnt so much and gained confidence and the necessary skills and knowledge to help save lives during an emergency. I want to thank the StreetDoctors volunteers for teaching us; they have been kind and patient with us, and our teachers for supporting and encouraging us during the programme."
