Healthcare science staff who work in the physiological sciences use specialist equipment, advanced technologies, and a range of different procedures to evaluate the functioning of different body systems, to diagnose abnormalities, and to direct and in some case, provide therapeutic intervention and long-term management and care.

Healthcare Scientists are involved in 80% of all clinical decisions in the NHS.
