Greater Manchester, Salford
The University of Salford’s School of Health and Society is one of the largest trainers of nurses, midwives and allied health professionals in England, and also provides world class education in disciplines such as counselling, social work, sports science and psychology.
Students – some of whom trained in our state of the art simulation suite designed to replicate a hospital ward – gave programmes such as Midwifery, Occupational Therapy and Criminal and Psychology 100% satisfaction scores in the recent National Student Survey.
The school has close links with NHS trusts and bodies such as Health Education England, the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA), local authorities and the voluntary sector and is a key part of the Devo Manc agenda.
Researchers work across areas such as ensuring the welfare of children and young people, providing access to housing and fair welfare systems and transforming the health and social care sector.
