A 37million elective care hub at Leicester’s General Hospital
A £37million elective care hub is to be built at Leicester General Hospital in the next year.
The news was revealed by Richard Mitchell, chief executive of Leicester’s hospitals, in an interview with Zuffar Haq on Ramadan Radio.
The centre will treat thousands of patients a year needing operations such as hip replacements. This new facility will be central to separating emergency care from more routine care, helping to cut waiting times.
Richard said the hub will be built with ‘new’ money and he also added that no land on the site has recently been sold.
Zuffar said, “This is great news for Leicester and Leicestershire. I am delighted that Richard is pushing ahead with plans for 21st century health care in our city.”
