Strong leadership

This is supported by a team of award-winning clinical and non-clinical educators, the development of specialised education roles through our clinical education teams, and the establishment of strong leadership by medical and nursing leads in undergraduate and postgraduate education.

We have modern and well equipped teaching facilities to enhance learning, including a Simulation Centre and Technical Skills Lab, where training can be delivered to share expertise and knowledge in a supportive study environment.

We also support the provision of high quality practice placement environments for students and doctors in training.


Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has launched a new roadmap to support our vision to become an outstanding provider of education and clinical experience.
