Course summary

When you’re a GP or other healthcare professional, you need to be able to deal with whatever you encounter. Our MSc Urgent Care course will give you the confidence and skills you need to oversee urgent and pre-hospital care so that you can achieve the best possible outcome for your patients.

From the better-known primary care conditions, through to life-saving interventions in hostile environments, every step should enhance care and improve outcomes. Remote settings present challenges to any healthcare professional – it’s all very good being able to diagnose sepsis in the community, but unless you can treat it, all you’ve done is delayed the care and increased the mortality. By implementing the skills you learn into your everyday practice, you’ll be able to make a positive difference to urgent patient care in remote, rural and hostile environments.

You’ll also explore how advances in the use of technology and digital health can enable you to access the skills of another healthcare professional in a different location when required.

This course is based at our Westlakes Campus, located in Whitehaven in Cumbria. You'll benefit from smaller class sizes and personalised support in a friendly, modern learning environment, with access to clinical laboratories, a well-stocked library, computer suite and restaurant.
