Healthcare Science Week provides employers with an opportunity to educate and excite the local community about the work of your healthcare science workforce and the vital role they play in patient care and treatment.
There are a number of ways you can get involved locally;
- organise a stand in a public area of your trust with some of your healthcare science workforce
- give a presentation in a school or college
- invite school and college students into one of your healthcare science departments.
You can also display our poster which provides an at a glance summary of the four healthcare science disciplines, a selection of specialisms and some key facts to help promote these fantastic careers.
have some great resources including a toolkit for healthcare science ambassadors to use including presentation slides, a video, poster and leaflet along with real life stories to use in schools and colleges.
