The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust

Children's Intensive Care (PICU)

Welcome to the Children's Intensive Care Service

The Paediatric Intensive Care service in Leeds is one of the largest in the UK. We provide care for critically ill infants and children who live in West Yorkshire and the Humber, and look after around 900 patients every year.

Most children who need intensive care come to us from other areas within the Leeds Children’s Hospital, or the Emergency Department.

Some children will need to be transferred in to PICU from their local hospital. Most will be brought to us by the Embrace Yorkshire and Humber Infant and Children’s Transport Service.
