The School of Healthcare Sciences is part of the College of Health and Behavioural Sciences (CoHABS) at Bangor University with two main campuses at Bangor and Wrexham, and was founded at Bangor University in 1990 following the integration of NHS education services for health care professions, which had previously been part of the former Gwynedd and Clwyd Health Authorities for over thirty years.
Since its formation the School has continued to maintain close links with Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (BCUHB), which provide practice placements for the majority of our undergraduate (BN) and diploma nursing students and whose staff make up the major part of the post registration student body.
