Alongside health service provision, the Health and Care sector has the potential to create great career opportunities and provide the right environment for local research, innovation and technology.

Our growing and ageing population, along with geographically dispersed towns and villages, are driving opportunities for economic growth in Greater Lincolnshire’s health and care 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.

The University of Lincoln and Lincolnshire County Council are collaborating to create and open the University's new medical school, and our Further Education sector is working on vocational skills within the sector.
