IPC Academic Partnership Programme

As an outstanding university institute we are committed to sharing and facilitating learning. The IPC Academic Partnership programme supports providers and stakeholders in health and social care, with learning events that offer vision, thought leadership and peer to peer learning. Our members include local authorities, NHS organisations and their partners, all of whom benefit from strategic insight over the longer term, sharing knowledge, driving debate and ultimately bringing improvement and innovation in care.
