By Nick Baker – 15th February 2024

Plans for The Rob Burrow Centre for Motor Neurone Disease (MND) at Seacroft Hospital in Leeds (Yorkshire, UK) have been submitted and now await approval by Leeds City Council.

Following our appointment in July 2023 by Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, the planning application follows extensive stakeholder and engagement sessions to create a design that meets the vision of all those involved, including clinical staff, patients, and the wider MND community, as well as the Burrow family.

The brand-new centre will see all MND services housed under one roof, creating a hub of innovation, education and excellence in the treatment for MND for the region, bringing together holistic patient-centred care in a purpose-built environment.

The centre will be in an accessible location that is conscious of the needs of those who visit. Supporting all aspects of the patient’s journey, the centre will create comfortable and peaceful surroundings for patients and their families, including spaces to reflect after sensitive conversations as well places to engage and create positive moments.


“As well as being adaptable for the future, one of the main visions of the new MND centre is to create a space for the MND community to come together to support one another, and this will remain at the heart of what it does. Engaging with what the community wants the new centre to be has fundamentally informed how we have designed the new building, from its location on the site and the materials we will build it from, to the furniture that we will specify and the colours and textures we will weave throughout the building and landscape.”
