Modules

It highlights the importance of advancing equality of opportunity, fostering good relations and equity of access to, and delivery/distribution of, health and social care resources. Students will enhance their employability by developing an understanding and being able to demonstrate how this particular value of the NHS Constitution applies in everyday work within all healthcare settings (NHS, Private, Charity and Independent sectors). Students will undertake the module in practice settings providing them with the opportunity to develop their understanding of physiotherapy provision within a range of specialties and environments.
