Glenfield Hospital

The core of our long held clinical strategy is to separate emergency and planned care so that the one does not overwhelm the other.

We know all too well that in times of pressure, patients waiting for planned surgery have their operations cancelled because an emergency patient needs the bed, is in theatre or intensive care is full. 

We want to make that a thing of the past and to do that we will create a new standalone state of the art £138m treatment centre at the Glenfield Hospital, with purpose built wards, theatres and imaging facilities.  A one stop shop for clinics and investigations so that patients have their ‘work up’ done in one day and in one place rather than being bounced around from site to site.  

Interim expansion of our Intensive Care Unit

Following the interim Intensive Care investment (£30m) we received last year to consolidate and improve our Intensive Care Units,  work is underway.

We are moving the Level 3 Intensive Care Unit and associated services from the General to the Royal Infirmary and Glenfield Hospitals.

Construction work for the scheme started in February 2019 with a final completion date of March 2020.

Detailed planning work has started across the Trust for the delivery of a series of complex service moves between sites.  The service moves are currently expected to take place early in 2021.  We expect these changes will bring significant benefits for our patients and clinical teams by streamlining patient pathways and improving our delivery of day case services.
