About this consultation

This website provides information on the proposed £450 million improvements to transform acute and maternity services at Leicester’s hospitals.

When we say ‘acute services’ we are talking about the care when patients receive treatment for severe injury or illness, urgent medical conditions, or during recovery from surgery.
