The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust

Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust is one of the largest and busiest acute hospital trusts in the country, a regional and national centre for specialist treatment, a renowned biomedical research facility, and the local hospital for the Leeds community.

We treat 1.5 million patients every year, including more than 200,000 emergency patients. We spend over £1.9bn of NHS money, treating illness and disease in Leeds and on specialised services for people across Yorkshire and the Humber and nationally.

We are increasingly seeking to use our economic influence to influence the health and wellbeing of our community, as an employer of over 22,000 staff, purchaser of goods and services and civic partner. We work with academia and industry to play a leading role in education, research and innovation.

We are rated as a ‘Good’ hospital trust by the Care Quality Commission, and our strategy is to continue improving so that we provide outstanding care for our patients.

University of Leeds

Established in 1904, the University of Leeds is one of the largest universities in the UK. We’re part of the Russell Group of research-intensive universities and are renowned globally for the quality of our research and teaching.

As a leading biomedical and health service research campus, our mission is to deliver research excellence that impacts on human health and wealth. We do this not only through the School of Medicine but by harnessing strengths across the University, notably in physical-mathematical sciences, digital expertise, computation, bioengineering and biosciences.

We take a transdisciplinary approach to tackle tomorrow’s major health burdens, bringing together researchers from a breadth of specialisms to tackle three key research themes. In the Detection and treatment theme, we aim to improve early and efficient detection and diagnosis, and more effective treatments. Our Better outcomes theme focuses on improving care and outcomes for patients with cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, arthritis and more. Our Coping with chronic conditions theme aims to help those with long-term conditions to live independently.
