Health sciences, nursing and midwifery

Nurses, midwives, paramedics and allied health professionals are on the frontline of the NHS, looking after the diverse needs of patients, families and carers, within a variety of settings. If you’re a dynamic, driven and people-orientated person, who’ll treat patients as individuals and take the time to understand who they are, what they need, and how you can best provide care, then this is the perfect field for you.
