During Healthcare Science Week in March, John Matthews and Dr Lisa Levett hosted our Sonic Healthcare UK stand at Brentwood School careers evening. Lisa writes:

There were over 200 really engaged GCSE and A-Level students with a keen interest in science. We had the opportunity to enthuse about a career in pathology and had some interesting discussions.

It was a great nostalgic trip for John as he attended Brentwood School as a student himself - as did our HSL Chairman, Lord Patrick Carter.

“It was wonderful to speak to the students and inform them of the amazing things we all do. Some of them had previously visited our hub laboratory at The Halo Building and were enthusing about their trip to see us with their parents.”

We are also very grateful to Dr Rachael Liebmann and The Royal College of Pathologists who provided some useful literature on careers in pathology and to Peter Short for our Sonic UK video and stand accessories.
