Our Partners

Our partners

Recognising the importance of this initiative to the national agenda to increase the number of registered of nurses and midwives who have trained overseas and who play a vital role in the UK’s health and care workforce, we have partnered with two organisations that are absolutely committed to driving the nursing agenda forwards – not just at a local level but also regionally, nationally and internationally.

Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

The Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one of the largest and most successful teaching hospitals in England, rated double ‘outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission.  The trust provides world-class services and treatment in the heart of the North East, to patients from the region, across the UK and internationally, with a core commitment to provide the highest level of clinical outcomes and exceptional care. A leading, research-led NHS organisation, the trust has a national and international reputation for supporting trainees and providing a high-quality learning experience for medical and non-medical roles.

A strong track record of progressive collaboration includes being a key partner in a regional Academic Health Sciences Centre and also in Collaborative Newcastle, an innovative partnership to improve the health, wealth and well-being of everyone in the city.

Newcastle City Council

Newcastle City Council is taking a key role in supporting the economic recovery of the city and recognises the increasing role health and life sciences play in the regional economy and working closely with Northumbria University and other partners to ensure that the NMC Competence Test Centre is appropriately recognised as an asset within the wider health and life sciences infrastructure in the city.  Newcastle City Council are part of Collaborative Newcastle which aims to support the health and well-being of residents, in addition to growing the health and care workforce.
