Like the other hospitals within Leicester Hospitals, Glenfield Hospital is a teaching hospital and has a purpose-built Clinical Education Centre. The hospital has a helipad to allow rapid access for helicopters carrying emergency patients.
The cardiothoracic unit has the only ECMO centre in the UK that offers treatment to adults as well as children. Glenfield is registered with ExtraCorporeal Life Support Organisation (ELSO) and is one of the world's most experienced hospitals in using ECMO. The specialist lung cancer centre has excellent lung cancer survival rates and an extremely active research programme.
