Course content

The MSc Strategic Service Planning and Delivery in Health and Social Care course was developed in response to an NHS skills-shortage and is designed for healthcare professionals looking for their next career step or those looking for a change in career direction.

This course is the first of its kind in the UK involving strategic planning within healthcare. You will gain the knowledge and skills required for effective service planning and delivery including; a critical understanding of relevant policy, data analytics and informed decision-making, principles of change management, effective leadership, and understanding the needs from the buildings used to deliver care.

Modules are delivered by experts from a variety of departments across the university, together with involvement from the NHS, giving you first-hand knowledge and experience that you can take into your own work.
