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 Science
- 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.
