Train­ing cen­tre plan at hos­pi­tal

Manchester Evening News - - NEWS -

A MED­I­CAL and clin­i­cal train­ing academy could open at Royal Bolton Hos­pi­tal in less than three years if a project led by Bolton Col­lege is suc­cess­ful in se­cur­ing the fund­ing.

The col­lege is de­vel­op­ing plans for a new cen­tre to open by early 2021 with part­ners The Uni­ver­sity of Bolton; Bolton NHS Foun­da­tion Trust and Bolton coun­cil.

It has sub­mit­ted a de­tailed busi­ness case bid for fund­ing through the Greater Manch­ester Com­bined Author­ity (GMCA) Skills Cap­i­tal Fund, with the re­main­ing money com­ing from the part­ner­ship.

If fund­ing is given the green light by GMCA, the academy would de­liver a huge boost to the bor­ough, pro­vid­ing what a coun­cil re­port de­scribes as ‘much needed vo­ca­tional and tech­ni­cal train­ing for lo­cal peo­ple’.
