As you probably often hear in the media the NHS needs more staff, but one area that is often not heard about is pathology.
Pathology staff are involved in the diagnosis of many diseases including cancer. Around 95% of patient pathways rely on pathology services. And with workload ever increasing, we need to be recruiting more youngsters into the profession.
It is a really exciting career for those who enjoy the sciences. To read more about this career pathway, attached is a our biomedical scientist interactive careers pathway guide.
The biomedical scientist interactive careers pathway guide can also be found HERE
(The guide is also for university students and graduates to understand the training pathway to becoming a Biomedical Scientist (i.e. what to study and where); and for existing or returning staff considering career progression or finding out about possible training opportunities, so it does go into a lot of detail later in the guide, but the start, as always, is the best place to begin).
