#AtTheHeartOfHealthcare Competition Winners 2022

Our favourite thing about Biomedical Science Day is watching all the amazing photos and competition entries roll in from the profession around the UK (and the world).

This year's #AtTheHeartOfHealthcare competition entries were all a great standard and it was really hard to pick out winners. Our judging method is a heavily guarded secret but it is made up of a mixture of social media likes, capturing the spirit of the day and being relevant to the most people in the profession.

Without further ado, here are our 2022 winners:
