One of the five missions of this collaboration is health and wellbeing

Mission for Health and wellbeing

  • To take advantage and expand the role of universities and healthcare organisations as anchor institutions, providing communities with a social capital asset that increases economic prosperity and social wellbeing.
  • To attract the world’s most talented clinicians and healthcare workers, training and retaining local talent to develop their careers in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.
  • To increase years of healthy living in local populations.
  • To maximise the economic opportunities provided by the strong local health and life sciences sectors

Programme of initiatives for Health and Wellbeing

  • We will develop a major new joint medical technology offer to business, with an ambition to make Nottingham and Nottinghamshire a leading destination in which to invest or establish new businesses in health and life sciences.
  • We will explore the development of a joint programme of development, training and support that help meet clinical skills needs across the local healthcare system
