Delivering Quality Healthcare BSc

Why Surrey?

The University of Surrey is a leading innovator and research hub for future technology in healthcare. The mission of the School of Health Sciences is to improve patient care experience and embrace the philosophy of integrated care and development of systems, to mobilise health technology.

We are devoted to ensuring that healthcare professionals are challenged educationally to enable them to deliver and support high quality healthcare for service users and carers. 

Programme overview

As healthcare professions move towards an all graduate entry, this BSc (hons) top-up programme recognises the need of existing registered practitioners to acquire a degree to enable them to progress their careers. As such, the content of the programme reflects the demands on health professionals resulting from the challenges set through the current healthcare agenda. This includes a focus on quality improvement through innovation, integrated care delivery, evidence based practice, leadership, decision making and health assessment.

The BSc Delivering Quality Healthcare also reinforces the need for the professions to revalidate their registration with the regulatory bodies by demonstrating improvement in their care delivery through lifelong learning.  Staff in the School of Health Sciences are motivated to support students to meet the challenges they face in their practice with a solution focussed approach utilising the existing evidence base, whilst demonstrating creativity in their own research approaches to further enhance professional knowledge.

The programme aims to create practitioners able to:

  • Support innovation in healthcare delivery to improve the patient experience
  • Participate in the implementation of change that results in improved health outcomes for patients
  • Understand the importance of measuring quality
  • Support integrated care rather than working as unidisciplinary teams or organisations
  • Take advantage of technology to improve direct patient care
