Candace Miller, Director of the National Skills Academy for Health with apprentice David Lammas
Guy's and St Thomas' apprentice David Lammas is featured on the Guardian website as part of National Apprenticeship Week.
Candace Miller, Director of the National Skills Academy for Health, spent a day on the NHS frontline with David, 17 - she writes about her experience in a blog published today in which she praises the role that apprentices can play in providing high quality care for patients.
She says: "David was quick to thank the support and encouragement he constantly receives from his team, as well as the expert hands-on training he feels he is so lucky to receive as part of his apprenticeship.
"I enjoyed my day shadowing David so much that I am now pledging to leave my desk and do it more often - meeting and shadowing young apprentices from a range of roles. And I've invited David back to spend a day shadowing me."
