The Faculty of Health and Social Care offers a large and diverse portfolio of programmes to meet the needs of health and social care employers and students.

The Faculty of Health and Social Care has a long history at the University of Chester, having been established in the early 1990s as the School of Nursing and Midwifery, and we now deliver a number of qualifications, from foundation degrees to PhDs, along with continuing professional development for range of health and social care professionals.

The Faculty has a strong experience of developing business and income generation in the form of Knowledge Transfer bids, commercial bids, academic partnership establishment and building curricula in innovative ways. Student employment rates remain high and national student survey scores relating to usefulness of course content in the work place bear testimony to our success in equipping students with skills in innovation and enterprise.

Within the Faculty, research is viewed as integral to the working life of staff, in partnership with local and regional providers of care. Our strategic focus is on further development in community/primary care, users and carers support and interprofessional learning.
