    I am going into S6 this year and I am thinking of doing biomedical science at Glasgow. I want to work for nhs but I don't know if I will have to do a postgraduate (Msc or doctorate) to get a job in nhs. Plus I don't know how the accreditation and registring with HCPC work. It would be really helpful if someone could explain this. And also is biomedical science a good career choice?
    Thank you


    Anyone??

    A good career choice in terms of what?

    To become a biomed scientist in the NHS you need to do an IBMS accredited degree.

    The BSc is the basic qualification. You may need additional training to move up the career ladder. Do some research and you'll get a better idea. Getting a job is down to you and how employable you make yourself. Getting any degree doesn't guarantee you a job. Pharmacy is very different so go with what interests you.
