Improving Health Outcomes
Together with partners we're working to help give people across the region the quality of care they need, with support to live healthier and longer lives. Ambitious plans, made together.
We're working to enhance health quality, patient care and wellbeing for local people through the longstanding relationship between Sheffield's medical teaching, the city's hospital trust and other partner organisations.
Healthy Lifespan Institute
The University’s flagship Healthy Lifespan Institute and its team of 130 world-class researchers work with national, international and regional organisations to apply knowledge and share the outcomes across the UK and globally, and are supporting the creation of a Sheffield Joint Health & Wellbeing Strategy (2019-2024) to help address health inequalities in the region.
Learning from patients in local communities
Our internationally recognised ‘Patients as Educators’ programme provides our students with the opportunity to meet and learn from real patients ensuring our students develop their clinical skills and importantly the human side of being a doctor.
National Centre for Sports and Exercise Medicine
The University of Sheffield is proud to be one of a number of partners within the National Centre for Sports and Exercise Medicine's (NCSEM) Sheffield Hub, which aims to support increased physical activity and improved health and wellbeing across the region.
Developing socially accountable doctors of the future
The Medical School’s unique Medicine Community Partnership Placements give medical students the opportunity to volunteer in local communities across South Yorkshire - giving support and working with people who need their help the most.
Ensuring access to quality medical care
We’re working with Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals on research strategy, nursing provision and the University’s Medicine Community Partnership Placements to ensure the region has access to enough doctors and other health care workers with the right skills.
