We have made the difficult decision to cancel the live OSFA event scheduled for July 2020.

Statement published on 24th March 2020

To comply with the public health guidance released by the government, and with so many of our healthcare scientists involved in the response to the coronavirus pandemic, Health Education England and the National School of Healthcare Science have made the difficult but responsible decision to cancel (not postpone) the live ASP OSFA event scheduled for July 2020.

The School is now working to determine the best and most efficient way to deal with the impact of that decision on trainees and the healthcare science workforce and to support trainees to complete their programme.

We will provide a further update for you by Friday 3 April. The current advice to final year trainees is to continue progressing through the requirements of your academic programme of study, as guided by your HEI, and of your workplace training and practice as far as is possible within the constraints imposed by your local circumstances.
