Healthcare Science Week 2019

February 17, 2019 at 3:15 PM

Healthcare Science Week is 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.

Healthcare Science Week 2019 will take place between 8 and 17 March.

A guide for trusts is available to download and has all the information you need to get involved, including:

  • suggested activities for the week
  • a mythbuster about healthcare science
  • a toolkit of information to use in schools and colleges
  • draft press releases and articles for internal communications
  • useful web links

There’s also a Healthcare Science Week poster that will help publicise the week and a more generic poster, from NHS Employers, to help promote healthcare science careers locally.

The Health Careers healthcare science role pages have detailed information about the different healthcare science careers, entry requirements and training programmes.
