It takes more than doctors to keep our frontline health services running efficiently with health and wellbeing apprenticeships

Whether you’re treating patients or conducting research, working in healthcare means you’ll be making a difference to the lives of others. Healthcare is one of the largest employment sectors in the UK, dependent on the experts who provide frontline care in hospitals, homes and surgeries. Without their commitment, dedication and professionalism, many lives would be much worse, and maybe even lost.

The complexity of the task at hand remains constant, from caring for people with physical, practical, social, emotional or intellectual challenges, to helping bring a new life into the world, or save another life from ending.

The NHS and other service providers need highly skilled professionals to undertake these and a range of other tasks, at a time when people are living longer and health budgets are being squeezed. Health and wellbeing apprenticeships reflect the need for professionals from the top down, with a particular emphasis on adult and childcare and support, nursing, paramedic and ambulance services, and rehabilitation.

Expect no days to be the same as you work to make a positive change to the health and wellbeing of the vulnerable.

There are a range of health and wellbeing apprenticeships on offer in this sector as it takes more than doctors to keep our health services running, you could be dispensing medicines, performing an eye test or working as a dental nurse.

Ambulance support workers are needed to transport individuals to and from specified treatment centres and other locations. Children, young people and families managers are also needed to build teams, manage resources and lead new approaches to working practices that deliver improved outcomes and put the child, young person or family at the centre of social care practice.

In medical settings, there’s still a demand for diagnostic radiographers to provide excellent patient care by obtaining images of high diagnostic quality using a range of high-cost and complex imaging equipment.
