Would you like a professional career in health and social care, working to tackle health inequalities and advocate good health outcomes for users of health-related services? This contemporary and exciting Health and Social Care degree explores the inherent links between health and wellbeing as well as the issues shaping the healthcare agenda nationally and globally.

You’ll examine health and social care from national and global perspectives considering cultural values and beliefs, enabling you to deliver compassionate, high quality and inclusive care and services for individuals, families and communities. Your lecturers will use their up-to-date practitioner and research experience to help you develop a high level of theoretical knowledge and practical know how.  Subject specific skills and the importance of cultural competence, social justice, adherence to relevant legislation and professional standards will be evident throughout all levels of your study.
