Managing Health and Social Care

This programme has been designed to be responsive to the requirements of those working in health and social care services within the changing service landscape in the UK. In particular, drawing on a history of close collaboration with those charged with leading the reconfiguration of services at a national and local level (e.g. NHS Education for Scotland, the Joint Improvement Team, COSLA). This programme responds to these developments by, uniquely, offering advanced training in the fundamental skills relating to the management of health- and social-care, which is addressed to those who are taking managerial responsibilities in increasingly integrated organisational environments.
