Healthcare Science Week


Healthcare Science week takes place every year in March and celebrates the work and achievements of the approx. 50000 healthcare scientists that work in the NHS.

Many hospitals and NHS trusts will have open days or special events during this week. For example see this video of a healthcare science open day at Guys and St Thomas Hospital in 2017.
