NHS Employers has been working with the Health Education MSC team and trade union colleagues to bring you this new resource.
You will be familiar with the Modernising Scientific Careers programme, and have experience of how it is changing the education and training of the healthcare science workforce. But do you or your colleagues have unanswered questions?
Perhaps you are a healthcare science lead for your organisation and could use a resource to support your communications with the scientific workforce? Or perhaps you are an Ambassador who is involved in promoting healthcare science careers and get asked for the latest information about training routes and registration arrangements? Or you could be a trainee, or existing member of the healthcare science community, who just wants to know a bit more about MSC and what it means for you? If so, this resource can help you.
MSC is not a new programme - why publish this resource now?
The UK-wide MSC programme was established in 2008, however the implementation of MSC continues to be led locally by NHS organisations with changes taking place based on workforce priorities.
Written in a partnership with the Health Education England MSC Team, Unison, Unite and the Federation of Clinical Scientists, 'Explaining the facts' is a resource to 'busts some myths' and provide answers to frequently asked questions about the MSC programme, it's implementation, impact and next steps.
