The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust


About Us

About Us

Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust is one of the largest and busiest acute hospital trusts in the UK.

Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust (LTHT) was formed in April 1998, following the merger of two smaller NHS trusts in the city. Today, it is one of the largest and busiest acute hospital trusts in the United Kingdom.

Every year, LTHT provides healthcare and specialist services for people from the city of Leeds, Yorkshire and the Humber and beyond. We play an important role in the training and education of medical, nursing and dental students and are a centre of world-class research and pioneering new treatments.

Our care and clinical expertise is spread over seven hospitals and medical facilities:

  • Leeds General Infirmary (LGI)
  • St James’s University Hospital (including Leeds Cancer Centre)
  • Seacroft Hospital
  • Wharfedale Hospital
  • Chapel Allerton Hospital
  • Leeds Children’s Hospital
  • Leeds Dental Institute

We have ambitious plans to deliver two new hospitals at the Leeds General Infirmary - a state-of-the-art hospital providing adult healthcare services and a world class new home for the Leeds Children’s Hospital. This investment will deliver modern, sustainable healthcare in an environment that supports individual care, innovation, technology and research.
