Healthcare Science Week online event
By Sarah Wood
Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Trust is holding an online event tomorrow (Saturday 13th March) focusing on the vital work of healthcare sciences in the Trust.
Careers up for discussion at the event include audiology, cardiac science and medical engineering.
Sana Khan, apprenticeships and careers coordinator at the Trust, said: "A career with the NHS is so much more than being a doctor or a nurse. Healthcare science is the hidden gem of the NHS, and there are over 50 specialisms in this area, providing the NHS with its scientific backbone."
Tony Dix, head of medical physics and lead healthcare scientist, said: "While healthcare scientists make up only five per cent of our workforce, they are involved in 80 per cent of diagnostic tests performed in our Trust.
"This scientific workforce is the best place to support the early adoption of the new technologies and techniques needed to help meet the future challenges of the NHS, and ensure that we remain a world leader in healthcare."
The online event takes place on Facebook Live at 10.15am on Saturday 13th March. Sign up here https://www.facebook.com/events/728327074537149/
