The Placement and Student Support Team forms part of the Health Academy, facilitating placements throughout Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and provides valuable support for all learners whilst on placement.  Our trainees join us from school, college or following a break from work.  We also offer pre-employment and Work Familiarisation schemes, helping people gain valuable work experience as well as Intermediate, Advanced and Higher Level apprenticeships covering a broad range of job roles.​

We have one of the largest Foundation training programmes in the North West.

We work closely with the University of Bolton, The University of Central Lancashire and the University of Manchester.  We offer Undergraduate Adult Nursing Degrees to help prepare students for a successful career in nursing, as well as supporting Undergraduate students working towards their degree in medicine.

We also have specialist training schemes for those interested in a career in General Practice or Core Medicine, in addition to placement provision for a wide variety of allied health professional trainees attending from across the North West.  We will inspire and motivate you, offering state of the art resources and teaching, to allow you to fulfill your true potential.
