What is the Academy for Healthcare Science?

Initiated by healthcare science professional bodies in conjunction with the Department of Health MSC programme at the end of last year. We are a new independent organisation whose remit is to set and maintain high standards of education and training for healthcare science.

We will aim to:

  • Define high quality education and training standards across the UK HCS workforce and improve patient outcomes by ensuring that the standards are promulgated and met.
  • Enable effective professional engagement in the ongoing development, and review of national curricula for the UK HCS workforce, across the career framework.
