Health care Assistant Thora Linham has completed an 18-month long level 2 Health Apprenticeship with Yeovil Hospital, earning a distinction for her hard work and dedication. 

This is the first distinction awarded to any apprentice undertaking their training at Yeovil Hospital. Originally, from an administration background, Thora chose to complete her course with the Trust because of the brilliant training opportunities offered and hands-on experience that has been widely reported.  

Thora said: “I wanted to work in the care sector and help others, so I did a complete u-turn in career paths. I worked hard to be where I am and have loved every minute of it. I have become a much more confident person with the help of a fantastic team on ward 9a and from the entire YDH family.”

Peripatetic Assessor Julia Beard worked closely with Thora as she progressed through her course. Julia said: “Thora has been a dream student to work with. She has progressed and developed into an amazing, young woman full of promise. We are lucky to have her in our YDH family. I am excited to see what Thora has to bring to our Trust in her next apprenticeship with us.” 

Thora will be starting a new apprenticeship with the Trust from October as a Trainee Nurse Associate from October.
