National Centre for Sport and Exercise Medicine - East Midlands

Information

The NCSEM-EM aims to apply world-class expertise to policies and practice that will benefit the health and wellbeing of the nation – from everyday people at risk of ill health through to elite athletes.

Evidence shows that sport, exercise and physical activity are effective in the prevention, treatment and management of disease and can enhance mental health and wellbeing, reducing the risk of mental illnesses such as depression, dementia and Alzheimer’s. The NCSEM-EM will build on this evidence in four key research areas which will be translated into teaching and training through our educational programmes and the clinical services we offer.

The NCSEM-EM is one of three hubs forming the National Centre for Sport and Exercise Medicine England, along with London and Sheffield. The East Midlands hub is a partnership between the University of Leicester, Loughborough University, The University of Nottingham, University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust, Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust and Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.

The NCSEM-EM has a hub and spoke structure with the hub based in a newly built facility at Loughborough University. The building has been specifically designed to bring together the research, education and clinical capabilities of the partner universities and NHS trusts to facilitate the translation of research into education, training and clinical services.
