Healthcare science week

Healthcare science week is an annual week of celebration and awareness-raising for the many careers in healthcare science.


Healthcare Science Week 2023

13th to 19th March 2023


How can you get involved?

Healthcare Science Week is a Trusts’ chance to tell their local community and other health professionals first-hand about how science and technology is vital in modern patient care and changes lives for the better. It’s also an invaluable opportunity for existing healthcare science staff to inspire the next generation of healthcare science staff by promoting the new career structures in local schools and colleges.

Getting involved in healthcare science week is easy and there are many ways you can take part. Your trust could have a stand in a public area or the foyer of the hospital, give a presentation in a school or college, or invite school and college students into one of the healthcare science departments.
