The BA Health and Social Care (Hons) course at Bishop Grosseteste University has been developed in consultation with Health and Social Care services across Lincolnshire, thus ensuring relevance to provision within the community and meeting employers’ expectations.

The Health & Social Care degree at BGU assists with meeting the needs of Lincolnshire’s Care community. The Health & Social Care Act saw the introduction of major changes and aims to integrate Health & Social Care services into a more service user-centred and holistic model. Lincolnshire health and social care providers work in partnership to achieve the best outcomes for service users, families, and communities. For the first time, many services, including hospitals, doctors, nurses, housing, aged care and social care workers, are in meaningful conversation about how to best assist those most in need.

On completing a Health & Social Care degree at BGU, you will have developed a broad range of skills and attributes which will make you ideally suited for a wide range of employment opportunities or for further study.
