Manchester Metropolitan University: Research and Evaluation - New Roles

What is it?

Working in partnership with NHS organisations and independent healthcare providers, we are actively involved in preparing and planning the future health and social care workforce to meet the needs of our growing and ageing population. With a multi-disciplinary team of outstanding researchers we have developed, designed and implemented a range of new positions to support learning and workforce development including, for example, Nurse Associate, a new addition to the care workforce who will help to deliver hands on care, ensuring patients continue to get the compassionate treatment they deserve by supporting registered nurses to spend more time using their specialist training to focus on clinical duties and take more of a lead in decisions about patient care. We are also a leading university for Degree Apprenticeships, developing industry relevant programmes in collaboration with regional and national employers. We are continually looking to work with organisations to create a workforce for the future

Why do it?

Challenges of patient demographics, ageing and developments in clinical practice and science have the potential to revolutionise the way healthcare is delivered. Working with partners, we have the opportunity to develop a flexible workforce who have the skills and competencies that we need in the healthcare sector in order to meet our challenges, keep pace with demands and capitalise on opportunities.


We provide bespoke and tailored quotations for research and evaluation and costs will vary. We have success in gaining funding from external partners and would be happy to explore collaborative funding opportunities.
