Why choose LTHT?
We have planned our services so that those that need to go together are under one roof
Easy to get to
Geographically Leeds is at the centre of the large West Yorkshire conurbation and has excellent road and rail connections to all parts of the north of England
Millions of people live within an hour's drive so it is the natural choice for specialist hospital treatment, and we have excellent modern facilities such as our world-class cancer centre.
For those who need to stay we have our own patient/visitor hotel at St James's University Hospital and numerous other accommodation options.
We have worked hard over the past few years to bring together services once scattered across our hospitals into one location. One example is the new Leeds Children's Hospital, which is now under one roof, ending the need for sick children to be shuttled across the city for particular treatments or procedures.
In Leeds we try very hard to make sure patients don't have to go to a different site, hospital or even city to get the treatment they need. This under-one-roof approach is becoming the norm across the world and Leeds is the first major multi-site hospital in the UK to have adopted this model of care.
We still have a few more service moves to make to complete this work, but we are well ahead of other hospitals and believe this is the best model for delivering patient care.
Our track record
Hospitals in Leeds have been delivering the best in healthcare services to our local population for over 200 years and are amongst the most famous in Europe.
Our reputation first attracted a medical school in Victorian times and in recent years it has trained thousands of doctors who practice all over the world. This renowned medical school has helped Leeds become one of the UK's top university destinations.
Research undertaken here has ranged from pioneering surgical techniques to the invention of world-changing equipment which has changed the way doctors and nurses work in every hospital in the world.
As Leeds has grown as a city at the centre of a vibrant region, so have we. Our hospitals are arranged to make sure we deliver safe, effective and personal healthcare to every patient, every time. More than one million patients every year already benefit from our services. As we deliver services from other hospitals across the North and as the city of Leeds continues to grow that figure is likely to increase.
The healthcare we provide is getting better and better. Because we are a major teaching hospital we have real expertise to call upon. Our great doctors and nurses also have access to some of the most advanced technology available anywhere in the world, ensuring survival rates for our patients are among the best in the country
No wonder we are the centre of attention. From the world's first hospital fly-on-the-wall series, Jimmy's, to today's BAFTA-award winning maternity documentary, One Born Every Minute, millions of people follow the work of our hospitals on TV in this country and around the world.
