The healthcare sector is the largest sector in the UK, employing over 4 million people. The industry plays a crucial role in supporting the economy by maintaining the physical and mental health of the wider workforce. It is anticipated that around 2 million people will need to be trained and recruited before 2022 as a result of the sector’s growth. Realising your dreams has never been easier. Whether you want to work within the public or private healthcare sector, or set out as an entrepreneur, studying on our Business and Healthcare Management course will impart the knowledge and employability skills that can fast-track you onto the healthcare landscape. This course will provide you with a range of opportunities to develop the attitudes, abilities and competencies needed to work in a health and social care environment, both home and international.
