The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust

Yorkshire Heart Centre

This specialised regional service provides surgical care to adults across West Yorkshire and beyond who have heart disease or abnormalities such as angina or heart valve disease.

Cardiology services at Leeds are managed within the Yorkshire Heart Centre, and patients’ medical management in both Cardiac Surgery and Cardiology is often shared.

A comprehensive range of surgical intervention is offered with the current exception of heart transplantation. Surgical intervention is also provided as emergency care to patients who suffer traumatic chest injuries.

Leeds has the largest Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI) service and the largest Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (Primary PCI) service for treating heart attacks in the country, both with excellent results.

We also host state-of-the-art facilities for the investigation and treatment of heart rhythm disorders (West Yorkshire Arrhythmia Service). Leeds provides a specialist regional Inherited Cardiac Conditions service and a multidisciplinary Heart Failure service working closely with Primary Care.
