What Does a Biomedical Scientist Do?
The role of a biomedical scientist is to assist in diagnosing potential ailments and diseases, and suggesting suitable treatments using technical equipment and laboratory tests. Without the people in biomedical sciences jobs, many key hospital departments – such as Emergency Departments and theatre – would not be able to function.
Employing modern-day scientific techniques, automated machinery and microscopic investigations, BMS jobs include screening samples to check for conditions such as cancer, AIDS and meningitis. Biomedical Scientists also check the suitability of blood for emergency transfusions following heart attacks or overdoses.
BMS jobs tend to be very analytical and require a high level of attention to detail. They usually fall into one of three main categories:
Infection sciences – Specialising in medical microbiology and virology to help stop the spread of infections through antibiotics.
Blood sciences – Offering the correct diagnosis and treatment for blood-related abnormalities - such as transfusions, immunology and haematology.
Cellular sciences – Checking specific cellular groups to determine any potential ailments.
Any healthcare professional looking for a biomedical sciences job needs to have a relevant degree in Healthcare Science, or a Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC)-approved and Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS) accredited Biomedical Sciences honours degree.
What Does a Biomedical Scientist Earn?
In terms of a salary, biomedical scientists in the early stages of their career will begin at £21,692 per annum, rising towards £28,180, according to the NHS "Agenda for Change" pay system. A specialist biomedical scientist can go on to earn £34,876, and an advanced biomedical scientist's salary will be around £40,000 a year.
The importance of biomedical scientists within the healthcare system, means there will always be locum biomedical sciences jobs available within the NHS or private sector.
Locum Biomedical Sciences jobs
As one of the most important cogs in the healthcare system, biomedical scientists will always be needed in both the NHS and private sector. And although there is a plethora of full-time biomedical sciences jobs within the market place, a locum position may be better suited to your situation or circumstances. Locum roles can be ideal for those who have a family to take care of, as you can choose to work as and when it suits you – unlike on a fixed-term contract.
You may see being your own boss as a huge perk involved with locum work, but you should take the time to carefully weigh up the pros and cons before committing to such a role. For example, you will be exempt from any form of work-place pension plan and if you have any time off sick, on holiday or maternity/paternity leave, you will not be able to claim any payment.
