Chief Scientific Officer's 16/17 workstreams

The Chief Scientific Officer’s unit is led by Professor Sue Hill and her deputy is Fiona Carragher. The 50,000-strong Healthcare Science workforce provides the scientific backbone of NHS and Public Health services, working across the four divisions of laboratory (pathology) sciences, physiological sciences, medical physics and clinical engineering and bioinformatics. Their work underpins 80% of all diagnoses and they make a direct contribution to treatment pathways, particularly in specialist services such as cancer and cardiovascular disease.
