Healthcare Science Assistant Apprenticeship

The Healthcare Science Assistant (HCSA) contributes to safe patient care across all care pathways from conception to end of life in job roles within hospitals, general practice and other settings in the healthcare sector and across all areas of healthcare science. HCSAs perform a range of low risk, routine technical and scientific procedures usually within one broad area of HCS, following specific protocols in accordance with health, safety, governance and ethical requirements. HCSAs work using standard operating procedures, initially under direct supervision but increasingly with experience, under indirect supervision.

Additionally, you will engage with work placements to develop the underpinning professional skills and practices required in the sector.
