At Leicester’s Hospitals, we are currently in the stages of refurbishing some of our existing facilities and building brand new ones.
For example, we have just completed a new unit specifically to host a large national study and research offices in the brand new Emergency Department building. We are also putting the finishing touches to our Children’s Research Space and have already had our first patients through the doors (May 2017)
We host the NIHR Leicester Biomedical Research Centre (BRC), one of only 20 BRCs in the country. We also have a Clinical Research Facility, the Centre for Diabetes Medicine and the Cardiovascular Research Centre, in partnership with the Universities of Leicester and Loughborough, and the Experimental Cancer Medicine Research Centre and HOPE Unit.
