Healthcare Science Week: celebrating healthcare science professionals across the NHS

Today, Friday 8 March, marks the start of Healthcare Science Week. The programme runs from 8-17 March and celebrates the work of healthcare science professionals and highlights the difference they make to patients' lives. 

In today's modern world, science and technology are vital to patient care and healthcare science staff are key to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of a huge number of medical conditions and rehabilitation. At UH Bristol, there are currently 425 healthcare scientists working across a variety of different scientific specialisms, each making a massive difference to the care we can provide to our patients.

Throughout this week we'll be active on our Facebook and Twitter pages where different healthcare scientists will, in their own words, talk about what their work involves at UH Bristol.

Information stands detailing the work of the healthcare scientists from across all specialisms in the Trust will be situated in both the Bristol Royal Infirmary Welcome Centre and Bristol Royal Children's Hospital entrance lobby. The stands will have various demonstrations and staff will be available to talk about their work and answer questions.

If you're in the area then feel free to stop by to find out more, and keep an eye on our social media or take a look below to find out more about the work that healthcare scientists do at UH Bristol.
