NHS partners

Our work depends on effective partnerships with NHS organisations in the East Midlands. One of our main priorities is working closely with our partners to ensure the highest standards of teaching, research and patient care.

Primary partnerships

In establishing the School of Medicine we aim to make our partnerships with the NHS even stronger so that our collective research and education activities deliver even greater benefits for patients and the public.

Our primary partnerships are with Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust, Derby Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, and Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust. We also work very closely with Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust and Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust alongside a wide range of primary care partners.

Most of our work is based in accommodation on the Queen’s Medical Centre and City Hospital sites in Nottingham and at Royal Derby Hospital. We also partner with Nottinghamshire Healthcare in the Institute of Mental Health and share accommodation at the University’s Jubilee Campus. 


Cutting-edge clinical care

We are closely integrated with our NHS clinical colleagues, many of whom are themselves leaders in research and teaching.

Many of our senior researchers and teachers are themselves clinicians who spend half of their time delivering patient care.

This close working brings cutting-edge clinical care to our patients and clinical relevance to our research and teaching.

Training future doctors

We work closely with the East Midlands Healthcare Workforce Deanery, Health Education East Midlands (part of NHS Health Education England), NHS Trusts, General Practitioners and other healthcare providers across Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire and Derbyshire to train medical students. 

Research partnerships

Increasingly our research activities are carried out with NHS partners. We are the academic partner in the NIHR Nottingham Biomedical Research Centre.
