Healthcare Science Education 2019: What is the role of collaboration in education?



Calling all Healthcare Scientists!

Join us on the 6th September for a meeting to discuss education within Healthcare Science:

What is the role of collaboration in education? How to maximise the impact of the opportunities ahead of us

This meeting will showcase current work and facilitate discussions about teaching across boundaries in education. It is aimed at Healthcare Scientists of all levels and from all disciplines, but would be especially useful for Lead Healthcare Scientists, managers, and those with an education input within their organisations.

We also welcome non-Healthcare Scientists who are involved with the profession as part of their organisational role, such as Chief Executives, Medical Directors, Directors of Education, and Chief Nurses.

The day will support networking for both trainers and trainees and will consist of a mixture of lectures and workshop sessions that aim to increase attendees knowledge of:

– National Healthcare Scientist educational strategy
– Education theory
– Options for delivering education locally

Confirmed speakers/workshop facilitators include:

– Ruth Thomsen (Scientific Director, NHS England)
– David Wells (NHS Improvement)
– Tom Warrender (Medical Mavericks)
– Betty Adamou (Research Through Gaming)
– Dr Kerrie Davies (Leeds University)
– Dr Jane Freeman (Leeds University)
– Victoria Heath (Great Ormond Street Hospital NHS Foundation Trust)
– National School of Healthcare Science
– Malcolm Robinson (Harvey’s Gang)
– Dr Anna Barnes (University College London Hospital)
– Dr Sarah Peel (Health Education England, GSTT)

– Dr Philippa May (Royal Free Hospital)

Please note that due to venue charges we have had to charge for this conference.  However we would not want anyone to be unable to attend due to cost restrictions and so we do have a limited number of bursaries available.  If you would like to apply for a bursary, please email either or for an application form.

This year, the one day conference is being delivered jointly by NECL Healthcare Scientists
