Health & Life Sciences

Oxford Road Corridor is home to one of the largest clinical academic campuses in Europe, attracting clinicians, students and researchers from around the world.

The five hospitals overseen by Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust provide a test bed for clinical research and medical breakthroughs. Their proximity to the university and the trust’s forward-thinking approach to estate development has paved the way for businesses in the fields of science, health, and technology to co-locate and foster a culture of collaboration and innovation. 

Manchester is the only UK city to have devolved control of its £6 billion NHS health and social care budget. Devolution means that health and social care commissioning takes place locally and city leaders can target resources and the health challenges relevant to the local population. 

Health Innovation Manchester located on the Corridor is an academic health science system which works with Manchester’s various innovation assets alongside industry to drive innovation into the NHS at pace and scale.
