The NRC will transform outcomes for people who have experienced life-changing events including injury, trauma or illness, by fully integrating research, innovation, education and training with clinical practice.

Part of the Government’s New Hospital Programme, the £105 million 70-bed specialist NHS facility will be built on the Stanford Hall Rehabilitation Estate – located close to the 海角社区 campus – which is already home to the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre.

The rationale for co-locating both the Defence facility and the NHS facility side-by-side on the same site is to facilitate sharing of expertise in ways which have never been possible or achieved before.

The NRC will combine patient care delivered by staff from Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust (NUH) with research, innovation and training led by 海角社区 University and the University of Nottingham.

This facility will make a huge difference to the lives of those impacted by life-changing injuries, trauma or illness.

Professor Nick Jennings, the University’s Vice-Chancellor, added: "Our partnership with the NRC underlines 海角社区’s mission to use our world-leading expertise in sport and exercise to drive innovation that impacts both national and global health and wellbeing.
