The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust


At the heart of innovation


A hospital at the heart of innovation.

The new Children’s Hospital development will be central to the Leeds Innovation District, an area to the north of the city centre that includes the Leeds General Infirmary site, Leeds Beckett University, the University of Leeds and Leeds City Council.

Over time, the Leeds Innovation District will be developed to become a vibrant part of the city and an area where people want to live, work, research and relax. It will have a retail quarter, pedestrian walkways and open, community spaces.

Working together, we will build on our strong partnerships in medicine, health and technology research to draw new businesses and investment to the Innovation District, creating jobs and wealth for Leeds.
