Sharing perspectives and expertise is a key part of the role our Public Involvement in Education and Research (PIER) Partnership plays in BU’s health and social care courses.

We are linked with 103 organisations locally and nationally and the BU PIER Partnership members, who contribute across the Faculty of Health & Social Sciences. Because of this, we take a keen interest in the stories and initiatives that affect those organisations, our affiliates, and members.  

We will use this page to regularly highlight important news and views from our region.
