Careers

Shape the future of health care. 

On completion of the programme, graduates will be qualified to apply for Advanced Clinical Practitioner Roles (ACP) roles in a range of NHS, private, voluntary and independent settings, including primary care. ACP roles often provide the opportunity for graduates to work outside of their traditional professional field/boundaries. It is likely that due to the evolution of the healthcare workforce that further roles/career pathways will evolve rapidly in the future and indeed, ACPs are very well placed to lead this service development.
