We’re moving some of our key healthcare services to a new home in the Science and Technology Centre at University of Reading campus.
The move will include the redevelopment of part of the Science and Technology Centre for our use later this year and will encourage a range of academic partnerships to be co-located alongside our services. Our existing partnership with the University includes our Berkshire Memory Clinic working closely with Pharmacy academics, and the Anxiety and Depression in Young People Centre (AnDY).
Sir David Bell, Vice Chancellor of the University of Reading said:
“Today marks the start of a new chapter in the partnership between the University of Reading and the NHS that has already borne much fruit, and it is an honour to have colleagues from an innovative Trust such as Berkshire Healthcare move important aspects of their work onto our campus.”
Julian Emms, our Chief Executive Officer, commented:
“Moving into this building will allow us to strengthen our excellent working relationship with the University of Reading while simultaneously creating a clinical site that provides an excellent patient experience and great working conditions for our teams.”
Professor Laurie Butler, head of the School of Psychology and Clinical Language Sciences added:
“The University of Reading has been working in collaboration with our NHS partners for many years and has already established close teaching, research and training links, which include joint clinics and the Thames Valley Clinical Trial Unit. Berkshire Healthcare’s move will undoubtedly help us to forge an even stronger partnership and will bring new opportunities to build on medically related research and clinical excellence.”
