Building Better Hospitals for the Future

The NHS in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland is proposing to spend £450 million to build better hospitals for local people. The proposals include reshaping acute and maternity services by moving all acute care to the Leicester Royal Infirmary and Glenfield Hospital. New hospital buildings would be built on these sites for maternity, children’s and planned care services. Our plans will enhance the care provided to critically ill patients and will see the doubling of intensive care capacity for the most unwell patients. On the General Hospital campus, some non-acute services would be retained and we will be asking people what other non-acute services they would want to see located there.

Before we are able to move forward with our plans, a public consultation must take place to ask local people for their views on the proposals. This is to make sure we have fully considered the impact they will have on local people.  The consultation will go live on this website on Monday 28 September 2020.

The three clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland approvedand discussed the proposals at a meeting on the  8th September 2020.  The CCGs will start the consultation with the public on Monday 28th September 2020 asking people to have their say. In advance of the consultation commencing if you would like to find out more about the Board discussions and the proposals that were discussed please visit the CCGs’ websites:
