How the Trust is organised
Leeds Teaching Hospitals is an extremely large and complex organisation providing services across several hospital sites.
Our clinical services are divided into five Divisions, each of which has a General Manager who is accountable to the Board through the Director of Business Development and Performance Delivery.
The Divisions are responsible for providing safe, high quality patient care, whilst providing good value for money.
In addition, support services are managed through the Estates and Facilities Directorate, and there are a number of corporate functions supporting the smooth running of the Trust, including Finance, Informatics, Patient Administration, Human Resources and the Medical and Nursing Directorates.
