Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust

Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust and its partners

Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust is one of the largest and busiest hospital trusts in the UK, providing healthcare and specialist services for people from Leeds, the Yorkshire and Humber region and beyond. We play an important role in the training and education of medical, nursing and dental students and are a centre for world-class research and pioneering new treatments. We employ over 20,000 staff across our five sites with a turnover of £1.6bn

The University of Leeds is a leading global university, rated Gold for teaching quality, and increasingly successful in securing research funding. Opening in 2019 the new 70,000 sq. ft. university innovation and enterprise centre, Nexus, accommodates spin out companies and firms wanting proximity to the university’s research expertise. This will build on other major university projects to drive economic growth, including Leeds Institute of Data Analytics, now part of the national Turing Institute, and the new Institute for High Speed Railways and System Integration.

Leeds Beckett University, rated Silver for teaching quality and student outcomes, is home to over 28,000 students from over 100 countries. Leeds Beckett University is investing over £200m in campus developments over the next five years. The £75m creative arts building, central to its City Campus developments will provide a new home for the School of Art, Film and Design bringing significant benefits to the university, the city and the wider economy. The creative arts building will provide a new city landmark, elevating the visibility of the university at this important city location. It will provide a creative focus for undergraduate, postgraduate, doctoral and research programmes in creative and performance arts as well as acting as a hub for cultural and industry partnerships across the city.

Leeds Way

The Leeds Way values are: patient centred, fair, collaborative, accountable and empowered.

Since its launch in 2014, The Leeds Way has become embedded in everything we do at Leeds Teaching Hospitals. We have received positive feedback from the Care Quality Commission about how it filters through every part of our organisation, and it has seen us improve year on year on staff engagement in the staff survey.

The Leeds Way is who we are and what we believe. It defines how we work to deliver the best possible care and outcomes for our patients. The Leeds Way is about listening and being inclusive and taking on board the very best ideas out there.

The Leeds Way was developed by our people, using crowdsourcing technology to undertake our largest staff engagement programme. There are well recognised links between engaged staff and improved patient care, so we need all of our staff to believe in our vision and values to help us achieve our goals. We asked them to describe the behaviours and leadership they believed were needed to be the very best and to achieve our vision. Building the Leeds Way is a long-term vision to transform healthcare facilities across Leeds Teaching Hospitals for our patients and staff.
