Clinical Vascular Scientist

I’m Laura, a Clinical Vascular Scientist working at Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust.

What does that mean?

I use ultrasound and other non-invasive techniques to image and assess the blood flow of patients with diseases of the arteries and veins.

What’s the best thing about their role?

I like the variation in my job role, also being able to work with patients and provide a beneficial role in their treatment and management. It is also a job that enables me to use my scientific knowledge.

Is their job stressful? How do they cope with stress?

My job can be stressful at times. I like to stay active and exercise is my biggest stress reliever!

Where are they going from here?

Having only recently qualified, I want to gain as much experience in the vascular world as possible and develop my skills to become the best clinical vascular scientist I can become!
