The future of the healthcare science workforce. Modernising scientific careers consultation

This consultation document sets out proposals to transform the future training and career pathways of the healthcare science workforce. These proposals have been developed as the result of detailed discussions with nearly 3,000 stakeholders. This UK initiative will be taken forward by the four countries in partnership with all major stakeholders, including patient groups, to ensure that the healthcare science workforce is fit for the future in a rapidly changing and evolving healthcare environment.

The document proposes clearer pathways into healthcare science careers defined through three distinct stages, with the ability to progress between them, subject to achievement of requisite entry requirements:

  • Healthcare Science Assistant
  • Healthcare Scientist Practitioner
  • Healthcare Scientist

We welcome responses to the electronic consultation from all with an interest in delivering high quality care to patients, which is inextricably linked to the future of the healthcare science workforce, and its central role in supporting and delivering that care.
