There are also generic study skills elements, along with Anatomy and Pathology modules, which would suit both acute and community practice.Successful completion of this Community Health and Well-Being course will give you 240 CAT points and over 300 hours in a supervised, healthcare related practical work placement. There is also the opportunity to top-up your foundation qualification to a full BSc (Hons) qualification with just one additional year of study
