Supporting the pipeline to HCPC Biomedical Scientist registration

Funding provided to help increase current workforce.

The National School of Healthcare Science, part of Health Education England, have delivered a funding boost of more than £2m, supporting the pipeline for staff working across Pathology across England who require degree assessment, top up modules and registration portfolios in order to fulfil the requirements for HCPC registration as a Biomedical Scientist.

This funding support will increase the numbers of Biomedical Scientists across England and will help current workforce shortages, with demand around service and workforce increasing, on top of the pandemic testing workload. This funding offer is in line with the NHS People Plan, which seeks to grow a bigger and better NHS workforce for the future and the 2021 Royal College of Pathologists ‘Getting It Right First Time’ Pathology report which recommends up-skilling of staff to take on higher level work and improve service flexibility.
