Congratulations are in order for the Project Search graduates who have all secured paid employment after successfully completing their internship at Northwick Park Hospital
Project Search, supported by partners including Medirest and London Borough of Harrow (Harrow Council), helps students with learning disabilities and autism gain practical workplace experience with the NHS together with a route into employment.
The initiative has a highly respectable 70% success rate in finding graduates paid employment compared to the national average of 7%.
Pippa Nightingale, CEO of LNWH Trust, said: “We’re keen to recruit our workforce from the local community where possible and support people who have traditionally found it tough to get a foot on the job ladder, such as those with learning disabilities.”

The graduates, who worked in areas including outpatients, pharmacy, the Post Room and Domestic Stores, attended a special function at Harrow College to celebrate their success.
Northwick Park Hospital will welcome 12 new interns in the autumn.
