Health Careers goes Bang!
Key for Health Careers during Healthcare Science Week is our activities at The Big Bang at Birmingham’s NEC from 14 to 17 March. Come and see us to try some healthcare science roles and bits of kit for yourself, and have a chat to healthcare science staff about what they do. There’ll be lots of fun to be had, including getting dressed up in lab coats for photos!
The Big Bang is free to attend, but make sure you register your place in advance.
