Healthcare Science Cymru

Welcome to the website pages for all things healthcare science in Wales.

We look forward to sharing updates on the programme, including how you can help to shape the future of healthcare science in Wales.

Our talented healthcare science workforce are key to the transformation of NHS Wales and are central to the delivery of high quality care.

Together we will unlock the potential of healthcare science – “Delivering Tomorrow, Today”.


On 23 March 2018, the Welsh Government, with the support of NHS Wales, published the Healthcare Science in NHS Wales – Looking Forward Framework. Endorsed by the Minister for Health and Social Care, it describes a number of activities that are designed to lead healthcare science in NHS Wales into the future and embrace the opportunities within ‘A Healthier Wales’, our long term plan for health and social care.

The framework also sets out our vision and direction of travel for the healthcare science workforce in Wales; a rewarding career choice, working at the edge of science to improve patient care across a range of disciplines and clinical pathways.
