YOUR HSL

Health Services Laboratories (HSL) is a clinically-led provider of pathology and diagnostic services

WORKING TOGETHER TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE

“Not in my wildest dreams did I imagine that, as a biomedical scientist, I would be at the centre of one of the most important pathology initiatives this country has ever seen. The development of the Halo, our new state-of-the-art laboratory, is being led by laboratory staff. Our new infrastructure will bring together disciplines that have historically been disparate. I know this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to reset the UK pathology landscape.” Michael Gandy, Translational Research Manager

“Our ambition is to be the number one employer for scientific staff in the UK, which means that we are listening to the people who work for us, and providing facilities that are right for them. Pathology is a passion for us, for our people, in fact for so many people in the scientific community. The investments we’re making reflect just how valued the profession is becoming. Perhaps that hasn’t always been the case but we’re here to change that. The thrill of being part of something so new cannot be underestimated.” Krystyna Ruskiewicz, HR Director

Our intention is to provide world-class facilities and an outstanding working environment. Everything else is about you. If you share our dedication to making a positive difference to the organisation and people we serve, we would love to hear from you.

WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR

We are looking for people who share our dedication to making a positive difference.

“This partnership reflects the fact that pathology is becoming more crucial to the patient pathway. Medicine should be a partnership between disciplines so we create a powerful system attuned to the individual patient. HSL is at the forefront of making that happen. We have always been proud of the work we do in pathology, but now we have optimism too, a sense that the future of which we hear so much about is far closer than it ever was.” Dr Vanya Gant, Director

We are strongly committed to ongoing professional development through our Faculty of Education and Training.

HSL Faculty of Education & Training

HSL’s Faculty of Education and Training exists to ensure our workforce has excellent knowledge and skills and provides a focus to share learning with partners in universities and beyond.

Professor Michael Patton, HSL Medical Director, chairs the Faculty. He explains: “Everyone who works in a laboratory needs training and education and it doesn’t stop on leaving college. In a scientific area like pathology there is continuous technological change. Our remit is from statutory health and safety training through to continuous professional development for our scientific laboratory staff and on to postgraduate medical education for medical staff – learning lies at the heart of what we do.”

The Faculty of Education and Training has an expert group providing leadership and links to regulatory bodies and the institutions for higher education in London.

The team includes:

  • Dr Keith Gomez, Haematology Consultant, the Royal Free London
  • Tim Herriman, HSL’s Laboratory Director and Fellow of the Institute of Biomedical Sciences
  • Wendy Leversuch, HSL’s Head of Scientific Training
  • Krystyna Ruskiewicz, HSL’s HR Director
  • Beverly Wallace, HSL’s Partnership Group Staff Side Chair
  • Gill Swain-Coad, HSL’s Learning and Development Coordinator

This group has introduced e-learning for statutory training and developed a robust programme to support scientific staff members’ continuous professional development. Trainee pathologists preparing to become consultants spend part of their time in HSL’s laboratories.

Among the laboratory staff there are 55 undertaking IBMS registration portfolios, 22 taking MSc degrees and 11 preparing for the FRCPath examination.

We provide a software solution to support all the training online and ensure wider access to flexible training opportunities.
