Organisation profile

Our Faculty of Health, Education and Society offers more than just a learning environment for students – the team is focused on improving the health and wellbeing of people living and working across Northamptonshire. Our research aims to address inequalities through innovative interdisciplinary research, education and enterprise to improve the whole population’s health and wellbeing.

We pride ourselves on our emphasis on participation and our interprofessional relationships. Our ability to draw on academic expertise from disciplines as diverse as biochemistry and psychology, as well as those more traditionally related to health and social care, means that we can consider real-world problems holistically.

With services such as the Podiatry Clinic, the Faculty forms a positive and integral part of the local community. The team works closely with outside organisations, including local government, health and social care providers and charities, for the benefit of students, staff, patients and service users to make a positive difference.
