This post is my personal account of having a long term health condition, which was in the process of being diagnosed during my application to the Scientist Training Program (STP). Lots of the information in it will be relevant to many long term health conditions and disabilities, but it is not intended to cover all aspects of either. I do not consider my condition to be a disability, but others who have it do.
It also includes information on what the National School of Healthcare Scientists (NSHCS), your Trust, and you can do to support yourself if you have a long term health condition and are or are considering becoming a trainee on the STP.
I am really keen to empower people to take as much of an active role in their own health care as they can. What I hope is that this post will be reassuring, supportive and informative for those with long term health conditions and to those who want a bit more information. Everyone’s experience is unique.Continue reading “STP Support | STP with a long term health condition”
