Celebrating Healthcare Science Week 2021

Last updated: 5th March 2021

This Healthcare Science Week Professor Berne Ferry, Head of the National School of Healthcare Science, would like to celebrate the healthcare science workforce.
Professor Berne Ferry said

Thank you to all of our fantastic Healthcare Scientists (and your families) who, despite all of you confronting challenging situations both in work and personally, continue to work tirelessly to help patients at this time.

While this pandemic has shown everyone in the country just what an invaluable and precious resource we have in our NHS; within the health service, the crucial immeasurably skilled work performed quietly every day by healthcare scientists across all patient pathways is at last being recognised. We will build on this recognition to continue to improve patient care and deliver a stronger and even more integrated healthcare science workforce for the future.

This year Healthcare Science Week is between 5th to 14th March 2021. If you would like to learn more about what a healthcare scientist does and the training programmes available, please visit our website.
