This section contains information about the work we do in the education and research sphere. Using the navigation on the left of the page you can find out more about our work in clinical research, our foundation programme, our lead employer scheme, our libraries service and information about the student placements we offer.

In May 2016 the Trust formed a new improved partnership with the University of Manchester Medical School which means the Trust is now teaching even more doctors as a Teaching Hospital Trust.

Research is a core part of the Trust and it enables our staff and the wider NHS, nationally and regionally, to improve the current and future health of the people we serve. Our Foundation Programme is one of the largest in the North West offering 198 Foundation posts and it is delivered across all our sites.

The Lead Employer Team provides recruitment, HR and administrative services to doctors in training and their Host Trusts located within the North West Deanery. All of our student placements have a dedicated practice education facilitator who will help support students and their managers during their placements.

The libraries section contains links to search all of our e-books and e-journal publications.
