‘I See the Difference’ campaign set to inspire a new generation of allied health professionals

2 November 2018

We are proud to welcome the launch of the aspirational ‘I See the Difference’ campaign, spearheaded by the Health Education of England and Office for Students.

This exciting initiative aims to raise awareness of allied health professions by promoting the inspiring careers within Podiatry, Prosthetics and Orthotics, Orthoptics and Therapeutic Radiography – all of which are areas in short supply.

The campaign is part of the Strategic Interventions in Health Education Disciplines (SIHED) programme, a £3 million, three-year plan to help build sustainability of the allied health professions. For more information on the ‘I See the Difference’ campaign, please visit:

Be a Greater Manchester Nurse – start your journey here

2 August 2018

On 29th June, we helped launch the ‘Be a Greater Manchester Nurse’ campaign.

We are proud to be part of this initiative led by the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership. The campaign also includes Manchester Metropolitan University, the universities of Manchester and Bolton and Greater Manchester trusts and care providers.

We want to showcase the amazing opportunities available to study to become a nurse in Greater Manchester and celebrate the achievements of an incredible workforce.

Central to the overall campaign is the striking “Bee” logo and an inspiring video, “Unsung”. The script for the film comes solely from song lyrics by Manchester musical icons such as Oasis, The Stone Roses, New Order and Elbow. The lyrics are spoken by GM nurses, including our very own students, against a photographic backdrop of nurses doing their jobs.

You can watch “Unsung” here:
