Project Summary:

Dorset LEP has allocated £2,700,000 of the Getting Building Fund to AECC UC for the construction of an Integrated Rehabilitation Centre (IRC) in Boscombe.

Construction of an Integrated Rehabilitation Centre (IRC) will be at the Garnet Campus, directly across the road from the main AECC UC campus in Boscombe. The state-of-the-art rehabilitation centre will build on AECC UC's health sciences educational portfolio as well as its current clinical services in radiology, musculoskeletal care, sport and exercise rehabilitation to deliver a greater breadth and range of services to local people in a new, more integrated way.

The combination of academic teaching and research, and the development of integrated clinical services in community and musculoskeletal rehabilitation, mental health and sports therapy and performance is unique in the south of England and has the potential to significantly enhance the health and welfare of the local population in Boscombe and Bournemouth East. 

Full project completion is planned for June 2022.

Expected Outcomes (to be achieved by end of FY 24/25):

  • 16 new jobs created (15 jobs by the end of FY 24/25, 16 by FY 25/26)
  • £1,390,000 increase in turnover
  • 75 new learners assisted
  • Increase patient sessions by over 30,000
