Health is a multi-faceted and complex issue and we combine our disciplinary expertise to address the issues that matter to the people in the community. We are working in collaboration with practitioners across the region and internationally, to develop models of healthcare delivery and care pathways across a range of clinical areas and expertise.

Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust: Workforce development within urgent and emergency care

Our partnership with MFT is committed to the development of a strategic alliance that is underpinned by an ethos of interdisciplinary care. Through applied research, education and innovation the partnership aims to transform care by delivering a highly skilled multi-professional workforce that is fit for purpose across health services and to create new and innovative ways to improve the wellbeing of the population of Manchester.

One key area has focused on workforce development within urgent and emergency care. The Urgent and Emergency Care Group’s purpose is to explore and exploit opportunities for the provision of higher education that enhances the efficiency of urgent and emergency care provided by professional staff working at the University Hospitals and in the community in Greater Manchester.

Pennine Care: A pioneering partnership to integrate clinical practice and academic research

We’re working in partnership with Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust (PCFT) to deliver healthcare and education to shape the future of communities. The guiding principles of our partnership are to integrate health and social care, and to develop and improve the health and wellbeing of our local population. Together, we’re combining skillsets to deliver excellence in research, innovation, workforce development and education to promote a progressive mental health and community wellbeing agenda. We are working with Pennine Care to deliver the clinical units on our Masters in Medicine programmes. 

Our healthcare workforce will have the knowledge, skills and qualifications they need to deliver excellent primary and secondary care across Greater Manchester.

Nuffield Health: Improving customer and patient outcomes

Nuffield Health and Manchester Metropolitan University are working together to produce best in class evidence-based research for improved customer and patient outcomes. As a result of our partnership, we will identify preventative pathways to inform public policy and practice.

We are currently undergoing collaborative work in two areas, research and innovation and education and workforce development.

Some tangible outcomes of working with Manchester Met have been working with a medical workforce in terms of postgraduate degrees, capturing those grades of doctors who are perhaps stuck, who have come from overseas and require an educational element to their work.
