The nominations are open for the CSO’s second 2021 Chief Scientific Officer Award:

The 2021 Shirley Fletcher Apprenticeship Award

 At a time when the NHS is facing one of its biggest workforce challenges ever, apprenticeships are an important opportunity for employers to provide an effective means of developing the skills of their workforce to order to deliver a safe and efficient health service to their communities.

The judges will be looking for apprentices and apprenticeship developers or managers who have shown a passion and commitment for healthcare science, who have participated, developed, driven or managed schemes, demonstrating an ability to engage with learning whilst in employment, with a focus on patient-centred care and the contribution of science to health.

Please share this with your networks and send your nominations for this award to using the attached form by Friday 18 June 2021.
