Students are given lesson in sporting wellbeing.

TOP consultants and physiologists from a North East hospital have delivered a mini-series of lectures for students at Newcastle School for Boys.

Leading health experts from The Nuffield Hospital in Jesmond aimed to promote health and wellbeing in teenagers while also presenting different aspects of medicine as potential career opportunities post A-Level.

With the Government's increased focus on developing home-grown medical practitioners across all areas, the team of experts delivered aspirational presentations to highlight the different range of careers available within medicine.

Health and wellbeing physiologist Aidan Innes focussed on how pupils can implement behavioural change in their sports training regimes to both decrease risk of developing lifestyle-related diseases and achieve better health. The lecture series culminated in a talk by Dr Paul Catterson, Newcastle United team doctor and host of Nuffield Health Hospital Newcastle's weekly sports injury clinic.

Newcastle School for Boys headmaster David Tickner said: "It's invaluable for our students to hear first-hand of the opportunities within medicine from leading experts."
