Institute of Health and Allied Professions

The Institute of Health and Allied Professions is a recently formed department at Nottingham Trent University. At our heart is a commitment to enhancing health and healthcare for individuals and communities. One of the ways we contribute to this is through the development of contemporary and innovative education for health care professionals both pre and post qualification. Our programmes cover Public Health, Paramedicine and Emergency Care and Nursing. We design education pathways to support progression throughout the healthcare career. For example, IHAP offers the opportunity to study an entry level role such as ambulance technician or nursing associate and build a pathway to registered level practitioners, post-registration specialist qualifications and advanced practice.

Partnerships are an integral part of the Institute of Health and Allied Professions. These operate at a global level and the long-term collaboration with the University of Makrere, Uganda has supported successful inter-disciplinary research and practice funding, including a REF impact case study. Our local partnerships with a range of healthcare providers have fostered co-produced post-registration/graduate education which is responsive to local and national workforce needs. We are developing a growing focus on joint research initiatives specifically creating clinical academic career opportunities alongside building healthcare staff research skills and capabilities. Our partners describe us as offering a fresh and flexible approach which fosters creativity.
