Health professions and social work

Careers in the different health professions and social work services are one of the most rewarding, yet challenging, within the country. From facilitating the the recovery of a stroke patient and helping a patient with cystic fibrosis maintain their independence, to racing to the scene of a car crash, a career in health will put you on the front line of delivering care to communities. Our programmes will challenge you to explore the human body and function while demonstrating the rewards of your hard work and commitment through transforming patients lives.
