People in Bolton are being urged to have their say on the proposed Bolton College of Medical Sciences (BCMS) based at the Royal Bolton Hospital as part of a community consultation.

Bolton College of Medical Sciences is a proposed state-of-the-art vocational and professional skills and training facility. It is a joint venture between the University of Bolton, Bolton College, Bolton NHS Foundation Trust and Bolton Council.

Understood to be the first of its kind in the UK, BCMS will give people a direct route into clinical and medical healthcare employment and provide unrivalled training opportunities for existing hospital staff to upskill and further their careers. When open, the facility is expected to bring £150m to the local economy.

Views are being sought on the economic and cultural impact of BCMS on Bolton’s diverse community, including how it will help the town to create and sustain rewarding careers in clinical and medical healthcare and result in an improved level of care.
