University Alliance institutions are at the forefront of training the UK’s future health and social care workforce, training 25% of all nursing and midwifery students and 18% of all social work students. This is due in large part to the superb learning and training provision afforded by our universities’ high tech facilities. Allowing students to train in an immersive environment, using equipment and techniques that they would encounter once they enter healthcare employment is crucial to ensuring that they are fully equipped for working in the NHS post graduation.

Our members offer incredible facilities in this area; from patient simulation mannequins, Skills Simulation Centres, online Virtual Case Creators and wards, to world-class laboratories, medical equipment and, on the patient care side, pioneering technology that aids the NHS through partnership work.
