We aim to harness our collective clinical and academic excellence to accelerate the transmission of cutting-edge research into healthcare innovations to improve the health and well-being of the people of Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland (LLR).

We’ll do this by…

  • Better integrating research with healthcare delivery, led by Academic Health Teams who will work on key questions that address local needs

  • Supporting areas of academic strength to influence healthcare locally, nationally and internationally

  • Using academic excellence to develop the current and future health care workforce, through integrated professional development programmes and talent management across LLR – creating the right skills, at the right time, for the right people

  • Increasing inward investment for health and care research
  • Improving the quality of care consistently across healthcare organisations through integrated quality improvement strategies
  • Driving innovation in the local and regional health and life sciences economy, by working with the Midlands Engine, Midlands Health Alliance, Academic Health Sciences Network and industrial partners
