From the lecture theatre to the NHS frontline
At Keele, our healthcare academics don’t just prepare students for working in the NHS of tomorrow. With over 200 of our colleagues also working clinically in the NHS, some quite literally go from the lecture theatre to the operating theatre. From delivering babies to saving lives, the wealth of expertise at Keele has a positive impact not just on our students, but also on local people on a daily basis.
Shaping healthcare across the UK
Our partnership with the University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust
One of the cornerstones of the Keele University-UHNM partnership is its ongoing success in providing local and national healthcare systems with highly trained and qualified staff. The four Schools within the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences (FMHS) at Keele University are focused on developing excellent clinicians in Medicine, Nursing and Midwifery, Pharmacy, and Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation. This is the result of the highly successful partnership between the University and UHNM, delivering the teaching excellence required in both academic and hands-on clinical environments.
Keele University and UHNM also have a long-established history of successful research collaboration. Recently, the partners’ mutual need to grow their clinical research capability further still has been recognised by the establishment of a third health-related research institute at the University and the appointment of a number of new clinical professorial positions. The partners have established a long-term commitment to strengthen their already robust partnership to expand world-leading research in regenerative medicine and primary and secondary care, enhance the health and wellbeing of the local population and forge strong links with the commercial sector.
