Lab team enjoys Biomedical Science Day

Lab team enjoys Biomedical Science Day

One of our laboratory teams, based at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn as part of the EPA (Eastern Pathology Alliance), that provides tests for our Biochemistry, Blood Transfusion, Haematology, Andrology and Microbiology services, have hosted a cake sale and a raffle and organised tours of their lab for visitors and colleagues.

They marked ‘Biomedical Science Day’ on 8 June by encouraging people to take up a career within healthcare laboratories.

Colleagues also helped to collect over £260 that has been donated to Norfolk Blood Bikes, a charity that transports urgent or emergency blood and blood products across the county’s hospitals.
