Northampton General Hospital and Kettering General Hospital have embarked on an exciting journey to become a University Hospitals Group, serving the whole of Northamptonshire and beyond through closer alignment and partnership with University of Leicester, University of Northampton and all other University partners. University of Leicester, with Northampton and Kettering Group, is committed to enhancing the partnership between academia and the NHS in Northamptonshire. A strong synergy between organisations is the key to success, major contributions made by consultant colleagues to the academic mission through research, teaching, education, clinical leadership, enterprise and innovation recognised by the award of a range of honorary titles from Honorary Fellow to Honorary Professor.

With four teaching schools (Allied Health Professions, Biological Sciences, Leicester Medical School, Psychology), six research departments (Cardiovascular Sciences, Genetics and Genome Biology hosting the Leicester Cancer Research Centre, Health Sciences hosting the Leicester Diabetes Research Centre, Molecular and Cell Biology, Neuroscience Psychology and Behaviour, Respiratory Sciences), the College’s mission is to pursue the highest standards of research, education, training in biomedical and related subjects, to apply this knowledge and expertise to enhance the quality of life and economic prosperity of populations, locally and in the world.

In the 2020 Shanghai International ranking, the Medical School in Leicester was ranked 20 (of 3,000 medical schools); Leicester was 5th in the UK (Highest rank for clinical medicine outside of the Golden Triangle). In April 2017 NIHR Biomedical Research Centre commenced, a collaboration between University of Leicester, University of Loughborough and University Hospitals of Leicester. The BRC brings together the work of Respiratory Medicine, Cardiovascular Science, Diet, Lifestyle and Physical Activity.
