Specialisms

Which specialism is right for you?

The GMTS offers candidates the choice of six specialisms for our September 2020 intake and you will choose one in your application: Finance, Health Analysis, Health Informatics, Human Resources, Policy and Strategy or General Management.

All of these areas help the NHS to function so that we can provide first class healthcare to our nation.

We also work closely with our colleagues in the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC), as their policies underpin everything we do. DHSC has its own Health Policy Fast Track Scheme (HPFTS) designed to develop future Policy Leaders who will shape and influence policies that impact across the whole of the health and social care system.  

Finance Management leads the way in helping the health service tackle financial challenges to get the best value for money and ensure we spend more on delivering our vital services to patients.

General Management colleagues work on the front line ensuring services are managed and delivered in the best possible way for patients.

Health Analysis adds value to data by providing insight and evidence, and data-based products to support decision-making in the NHS for the benefits of patients.

Health Informatics Management is the lifeline that ensures everyone has the information they need to make informed decisions for the benefit of patients.

Human Resources Management makes sure we have the best workforce to deliver the best patient care and to tackle the unprecedented change we’re going through.

Policy and Strategy Management colleagues create programmes that improve patient care through evidence-based policy, systems thinking and strategy development.

The Department of Health & Social Care (DHSC) deals with issues that affect everyone – from preventing pandemics and funding social care, to helping the NHS use UK taxpayers’ money wisely, and reducing future needs by tackling childhood obesity and diabetes prevention.
