Ulster Hospital Laboratories highly commended at Excellence Awards


The Ulster University Excellence Awards were held on 8th May 2019. For the third year running, our laboratories were highly commended for their commitment to training and supporting Ulster University Placement students.

Each year, the Microbiology, Biochemistry and Haematology laboratories within the Trust offer a 52-week placement programme for up to three students undertaking a degree in Biomedical Science at Ulster University. During the placement students complete their Health and Care Professions Council professional registration training portfolio, and following successful completion of their degree programme are then eligible to apply for Biomedical Scientist posts.

From over 200 applications, employers were shortlisted across 6 sectors, with the laboratories amongst a shortlist of three in the Public Sector category. To be shortlisted and highly commended again recognizes the commitment of our Laboratories to providing a high quality placement experience for students. Congratulations to all staff involved with training placement students throughout the laboratory disciplines.
