    Good to see therapy is given separately from health science.

    That's because, in Wales, "Health Sciences" refers to all the testing laboratories (histology, biochemistry, microbiology, haematology), whilst "Therapies" refers to non-medical clinical staff (physiotherapy, SALT, OT, audiology, podiatry, dieticians, radiology).
