This programme aims to equip students who are front line clinicians or have roles in management and leadership in healthcare. As health care provision becomes increasingly complex, with greater demand for services and more people with multiple long term conditions plus the shortages of skilled professionals, there is a growing importance on how health care needs to improve and transform.

This Masters (MSc) Transforming and Leading Health Care is designed as a multi­disciplinary programme for professionals and managers leading across both health. As health care provision becomes increasingly complex, with greater demand for services and more people with multiple long term conditions plus the shortages of skilled professionals, there is a growing importance on how health care components (workforce/politics/economics/ accreditation) need to improve and transform.
