We are working with partners to address major challenges in the healthcare sector, including an ageing population, maintaining wellbeing, and improving the recruitment and retention of staff.
The embedded nature of our NHS partnerships enables greater strategic organisational alignment. The benefits of this include allowing the rapid design of innovative placements for students and graduates, for example.
We have co-developed innovative research that evaluates transformations, creates innovative techniques, and offers unique facilities such as the John van Geest Cancer Research Centre.
