Biomedical Scientist Consultation – Survey results

13 April, 2022

The results of the Level 6 Biomedical Scientist Consultation survey are now in:

We had a total of 142 responses from individuals working in a wide range of organisations and with a good geographical spread across England.

A large number of the respondents (84%) had not been involved in the trailblazer previously.

Overall there was good support for the draft standards with an average of 94% in agreement with the content. There was also very useful qualitative feedback that the trailblazer group will need to consider. The group is now busy analysing the data so that the standard can be updated prior to submission.

In light of the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) recently publishing proposed new Standards of Proficiency for Biomedical Scientists, the group will also take these into consideration when finalising the standard.

Thank you for taking part and sharing the consultation link.
