Health and Life Sciences

Our growing and ageing population, along with geographically dispersed towns and villages, are driving opportunities for economic growth in Greater Lincolnshire’s Health and Life-sciences sector, which currently employs 58,000 people and is worth £2bn per annum to our economy.

Opportunities include developing and embedding innovation across the NHS through the new Schools of Life Sciences and Pharmacy at the Lincoln Science and Innovation Park, deploying assistive technology, and ensuring our housing stock can meet the ‘whole life’ needs of residents. In 2012, joint venture partners, Lincolnshire Co-op and the University of Lincoln, founded Lincoln Science & Innovation Park (LSIP) to create a world-class environment for science, research and innovation in the city.  The LSIP offers many opportunities for science and technology businesses to locate there with research equipment, expertise and skills, incubation office space, design and build opportunities and meeting and conference spaces and facilities.

Alongside health service provision, this sector has the potential to create great career opportunities and provide the right environment for local research, innovation and technology. Completed in March 2021 was Lincoln's Medical School, a partnership between the universities of Nottingham and Lincoln. It is hoped the new Medical School will address future projected shortages of doctors by offering first class training that will encourage graduates to complete their junior doctor training locally and apply for jobs in the region.
