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.
Possible future career directions could include work as a Family Support Worker, working within drug and alcohol-related support services, support work in relation to homelessness or family violence, or employment in the fields of community, public or mental health as well as more traditional health care services.
