Our Science Ambassadors had the amazing opportunity to meet with Dr Shirley Spoors, a consultant biochemist from the NHS.

Shirley belongs to a group of staff called Healthcare Scientists who work in the NHS (alongside doctors and nurses) and plays a vital role in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of a huge number of medical conditions.

The students heard an exciting presentation about this field of work and had the opportunity to ask Shirley questions about her career.

This incredible opportunity was made possible by STEM Learning, through which the science department have made connections to numerous professionals who work in the STEM field.
