Monkey in UK Primary Schools

Monkey at NHS Institute for Innovation & ImprovementAhHa Publications (and Monkey) have been commissioned by the NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement to produce a primary school lesson plan and resource pack about the NHS.

Covering subjects such as visiting an A&E department, making an appointment with a GP and the role of a pharmacist, the pack aims to make children and their families aware of who to go to within the NHS for different types of health care and advice.

Suitable for children aged 4 to 11 years old, the pack will encourage children to share their experiences and consider the needs and feelings of others, as well as supporting National Healthy School Status through the inclusion of activities to promote healthy lifestyles, diet and exercise.
