Why choose this course?

Across the UK, the health and social care agenda is a key political issue and there is increasing integration within health and social care fields, which will continue to grow. As a result of this, the sector is seeing the emergence of new and innovative roles that cross traditional career boundaries to ensure seamless and relevant health, wellbeing and social care services. Health and social care related roles within third sector, private and Local Authority provision are increasingly held by people who do not work within ‘traditional’ roles such as nursing or social work but which require understanding of the needs of those within the community, particularly those for example with long term conditions, informal carers and the preventative role of public health initiatives.


The programme is also relevant to those already working in the field and who may be seeking to support theoretical knowledge to ensure that their practice is contemporaneous and evidence-based.
