As the NHS celebrates 75 years, Deborah Robinson, Interim Dean for the University of Hull’s Faculty of Health Sciences, reflects on our partnership.
As the NHS celebrates its 75th birthday, the University of Hull celebrates a partnership that goes back more than 45 years. The University’s Institute of Nursing Studies started offering a BSc (Hons) in Nursing in the 1970s – and was one of the first UK universities to teach the degree programme.
The University of Hull and Hull York Medical School have forged strong links with NHS trusts and partner organisations, delivering life-changing research, helping to shape guidelines to provide the highest level of healthcare for patients, and bringing improvements to the health of our region and beyond.
The University and medical school have helped to address skills shortages in the NHS by training outstanding doctors, physician associates, nurses, midwives, operating department practitioners, paramedics, physiotherapists, dieticians, clinical psychologists and advanced clinical practitioners.
