The shield features a diagonal blue band with the staff of Asclepius (a Greek god of medicine), flanked by pestles and mortars. A horizontal band across the top of the shield features a Tudor rose with golden rays between two open books. The helm is surmounted by a foxglove and crossed poppy heads.
