Jane Lynch

Welcome to the February ETP memo. I hope that your academic learning and workplace training are going well. Many of you will be ready to test your current knowledge with the BSE Theory exam happening in the near future. I wish you all well with this and with all of your university assignments.

This month’s memo contains information on Healthcare Science Week where we celebrate the work of all our fantastic Healthcare Scientists and I hope you have the chance to get involved with this.

We are also excited to announce our joint webinar with the BSE on the Practical Accreditation Assessment. This will give you information on what to expect and top tips on how to prepare your submissions to the best effect. Further details below. See you all there.
