[Press & Publications] LEICESTER SERVES AS 'MODEL' FOR CHINA



September 1999

No 162

FOR THE ATTENTION OF NEWS AND PICTURE EDITORS:

A high-powered delegation from China visited Prince Philip House, St Matthews, on Thursday 16 September to look at its approach to health care.

They are looking at the British general practice community approach to addressing urban problems and examining how models in Britain - like Prince Philip House - can help to evolve services in China.

They are particularly interested in the multi-agency approach modelled by Prince Philip House which includes the University of Leicester education of medical students.

Dr Angela Lennox, Director of the Centre for Studies in Community Health Care, at the University of Leicester, said Prince Philip house was seen as a model of best practice.

Among the delegation is the Vice-Minister of Health for China.

Prince Philip House was opened in July 1996 - a 1.7 million Centre in which the University played an important role. A significant contribution came from the Trent NHS Executive and Leicestershire Health. The building was purchased by the Fosse Health NHS Trust and is now a state-of-the-art centre. It also includes the Frank Harris Teaching Centre, named after the Dean of the University's Faculty of Medicine and Biological Sciences
