What we do
As one of the country's leading teaching hospitals, Leeds General Infirmary has an international reputation for its expertise in a range of specialist services for which the hospital is a regional centre.
Central to the site is the Jubilee Building, which It brings together many of the country's leading experts in caring for critically ill patients with serious brain injuries, heart and lung problems and major trauma. A helicopter deck on the Jubilee Building has seen thousands of flights by the Yorkshire Air Ambulance bringing sick patients from all across the Yorkshire region and beyond to be treated by experts at LGI.
It is also a specialist regional centre for a number of complex conditions, as well as providing many general acute hospital services such as an A&E department, intensive care, state of the art operating theatres and a high-tech high dependency unit.
The hospital has a large and busy Accident and Emergency department for adults, and next to it is a separate dedicated facility catering for children up of the age of 16, adjacent to the facilities of Leeds Children's Hospital to ensure seamless care for youngsters.
It also has one of the best-known maternity units in the country thanks to its recent exposure on the BAFTA award-winning Channel 4 series One Born Every Minute.
