Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust is one of the largest acute providers in the country with over 16,000 staff, a £1.1 billion budget and seeing around 1.5 million patients year.
We provide a wide range of tertiary services to the Yorkshire and Humber region and beyond. These include cardiac surgery, neurosurgery, organ transplantation, cancer services, children’s services and major trauma. In early 2016 the Trust was designated the national hand transplant lead centre, having pioneered this service in the UK.
Services are delivered across seven sites – St James’s University Hospital, Leeds General Infirmary, Leeds Children’s Hospital, Leeds Dental Institute, Chapel Allerton Hospital, Seacroft Hospital and Wharfedale Hospital.
All Trust staff worked together to develop The Leeds Way – values which define the Trust’s way of working as Accountable, Collaborative, Empowered, Fair and Patient-centred.
The Trust is a leading centre of research and innovation and helped pioneer e-procurement in the NHS. We are one of the 32 Lord Carter Trusts, and we are one of five trusts nationally working with NHS Improvement and the Virginia Mason Institute , using lean methodology to develop what we call the Leeds Improvement Method.
