COVID-19: LAMP work placement programme

The National School of Healthcare Science, Institute of Biomedical Science and Royal College of Pathologists have worked collaboratively with NHSE/I to develop a framework for the completion of training to support COVID-19 LAMP testing.

This project is to support suitable third year biomedical science and other relevant laboratory science undergraduates to deliver asymptomatic testing that is already occurring in some parts of the country.

After successful completion of the training and testing, the student will be issued with a Certificate of Completion of COVID-19 LAMP work placement, demonstrating their contribution to the response to COVID-19. Completion may enable some learners to evidence completion of HCPC Standards of Proficiency and the IBMS/HCPC preregistration portfolio if they go on to undertake this.
