National Pathology Week 2015

National Pathology Week 2015 (2nd - 8th November) is a celebration of pathology and the important contribution pathologists make to healthcare, through a programme of events aimed at people of all ages.

Throughout the week, pathologists and laboratory scientists, both nationally and internationally, will be running a variety of events to improve public awareness and understanding of the science behind the cure.

We encourage as many pathologists and laboratory scientists as possible to get behind the week by running an event. This is your chance to showcase your work and engage with local audiences.

If you are interested in running an event,  please visit the National Pathology Week website  to find event ideas, resources, funding information and promotional materials to help you develop, promote and deliver your event.

Remember to keep everyone up-to-date with what's happening by registering any event or activity.

Healthcare Science Week 2015 – get involved!

Healthcare Science Week is an annual week-long programme that showcases the incrediblework of healthcare scientists in the NHS.

The week taking place between 13 and 22 March, is a fantastic opportunity to inspire the next generation of healthcare scientistsby promoting over 54 different careers to local schools and colleges.  It is also a chance for trusts’ to tell other health professionals first-hand about how science and technology is vital in modern patient care and changes lives for the better.

NHS Careers has updated its guide for trusts which is available to download on its website. The guide has all the information trusts need to get involved, including suggested activities for the week and draft press releases and articles for internal communications. NHS Employers has also made a new poster which healthcare science staff can download and use to promote the week locally.

If you’re enthusiastic about healthcare science, then this is a perfect opportunity for you to promote your role. We need healthcare scientists to share their knowledge and experience to inspire the healthcare science workforce of the future!

For staff looking to be involved beyond healthcare science week, register with STEMNET today to become a healthcare science ambassador!
