HSL sponsors Biomedical Scientist of the Year award

23 Oct, 2017

HSL is delighted to be sponsoring the Biomedical Scientist of the Year award at the Advancing Healthcare Awards 2018. Nominations are now open. This week we are celebrating the vital work of biomedical scientists across the UK. In the first of our three-part series, Krystyna Ruszkiewicz, HR director at HSL, discusses why she was so keen for HSL to sponsor this particular award.

This year, HSL is sponsoring a category at the Advancing Healthcare Awards which will resonate closely with many people who work for us – Biomedical Scientist of the Year.

As a clinically-led provider of world-class diagnostic and pathology services, we are committed to finding, developing and promoting the very best talent within biomedical science.

Biomedical scientists are integral to our service, and the investments we’re making here at HSL reflect just how much we value their work. We are an innovative joint venture between TDL and NHS partners, and are currently moving into the Halo, our brand-new, state-of-the-art laboratory located in the heart of London’s bioscience hub. The Halo is not only one of the biggest laboratories in Europe, it also offers the very best facilities, newest technologies and an outstanding work environment. With access to cutting-edge research and healthcare innovations, our ambition is to be the number one employer for scientific staff in the UK. We are passionate about pathology, as are the people who work for us. It therefore seems fitting that we should celebrate the remarkable work they do with this nationally recognised award.

We first got involved with the Advancing Healthcare Awards earlier this year, with our sponsorship of the Rising Stars category. Sitting on the judging panel and participating in the ceremony, I was so impressed by the energy, enthusiasm and innovation of the nominees, and the work they were doing to improve services for patients and their families. As a profession, biomedical science has a relatively low profile and we hope that this award will help highlight its contribution to patient care.

The award is open to all HCPC-registered biomedical scientists working in the UK. We’re looking for an exceptional individual who has used their training and expertise to advance their profession, inspire others, and make a real difference to patients’ lives. You can nominate yourself, a colleague, or suggest someone nominates themselves. Or, you may know outstanding people working in other organisations who you think should be put forward.

I’d be delighted to talk to you about it or you can find out more here: www.ahpandhsawards.co.uk
