Strong partnerships with its local NHS Trusts and primary and community care providers, ensure the School remains abreast of local and national health and workforce needs, and facilitates the provision of early and sustained clinical experience for students. The School is currently undergoing one of the largest transformations in its history, having been awarded an additional 90 places as part of the Government’s expansion of undergraduate medical education in 2017.
