This has been the result of a long process of planning and negotiation with Kingston University who together with St George’s, University of London, currently operate in partnership with the GHA, towards providing the local delivery of Diplomas and Degrees in Health Care, Paramedic Science, and Nursing. The Minister for Health & the Environment, who confirmed the arrangements during a recent visit to Kingston, commented,

“I am particularly thrilled about the delivery of this locally based Master’s Degree that specifically targets GHA employees. Government is continually taking steps towards raising overall standards and quality in our health service. This programme will not only encourage staff to strengthen their own leadership and managerial skills but will also help create greater focus on what is most crucial, to ensure that the main beneficiaries of everything we do are our patients and other service users. In addition, this is a unique and important opportunity to help enable locally based succession planning by equipping our staff with the right balance of experience, skill, knowledge, and academic study.”
