Healthcare Science Week

Healthcare Science is an umbrella term for a range of disciplines working in the NHS. We make up 5% of NHS employees and yet are part of just about every patient pathway.

There are a number of disciplines where you will find Healthcare Scientists:

  • Laboratory sciences (clinical genetics, blood transfusion, phlebotomy)
  • Physiological sciences (audiology, cardiac physiology, urodynamics)
  • Medical Physics and Clinical Engineering (rehabilitation engineering, radiation protection, renal dialysis)
  • Bioinformatics (genomics, computer modelling)

Meet Fiona and Stephen showcase some of the brilliant career opportunities Healthcare Science offers.
