We remain committed to ensuring that education is available to all, and that it remains interesting, relevant and is an enjoyable experience for all of our learners.
We have strong, established partnerships with both Bolton NHS Foundation Trust and the University of Bolton and together we seek to maintain palliative and end of life care education as a priority and direct the delivery of palliative care locally and in line with local and national priorities.
