In this article we welcome our newest Organisation Member, the University of Central Lancashire (UCLAN). UCLAN’s National Centre for Remote and Rural Medicine, has recently published an excellent piece of research highlighting the scale of healthcare inequalities in rural communities.

UCLAN are the fourth academic institution to join the Faculty as an Organisation Member. UCLAN have been highly supportive of the Faculty since our inception and have contributed considerably to the development of the FRRHH Capabilities Framework. We have also recently appointed Prof Stuart Maitland-Knibb, Director of the National Centre for Remote and Rural Medicine, to our newly formed FRRHH Faculty Advisory Board.

UCLAN are a partner of considerable significance as leaders of undergraduate and postgraduate education for remote, rural and now humanitarian healthcare. UCLAN offers MSc programmes in Disaster Medicine and Remote and Rural Medicine and bring a substantial insight into curriculum design and implementation.

We are delighted to see our global community of best practice growing. Academic partners such as UCLAN, demonstrate our shared commitment to the development and further professionalisation of remote, rural and humanitarian healthcare. It is our goal to work collaboratively with such partners to achieve our collective goals.
