Healthcare Science Week is 13th - 19th March 2023!

Healthcare Science Week, 13-19 March 2023 brings together over 50 scientific specialisms and professional groups to celebrate and raise awareness of this diverse NHS workforce. Over the last 75 years NHS healthcare science has played a vital role in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of disease and the health of our population.
