Healthcare Scientist (HCS) Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) Programme

Driving innovation through measurement science to help support a world class healthcare system.

The HCS KTP Programme offers a unique opportunity for healthcare scientists from across the UK to build long-term partnerships between clinical, research and industry teams at leading centres of excellence in science and technology. In partnership with other UK National Measurement System (NMS) organisations and the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS), the NML provide world-leading chemical and bio-measurement expertise through the HCS KTP Programme.

Through facilitating early interaction and knowledge exchange, the programme aims to speed up the identification and dissemination of high value new approaches to improving patient outcomes and increasing efficiency, whilst promoting economic growth and inward investment in the life sciences.

The eighteen-month programme is designed to enable senior healthcare scientists to remain in clinical service whilst exchanging skills and expertise with NMS scientists to create, expand, test or implement innovative ideas to improve the quality of patient care.
