The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust

Better for patients, by design

From the very beginning, our new hospital building will include technology and design features that will enable us to provide modern, flexible healthcare that can change and adapt to patients’ needs in the future.


Future technologies will be part of the fabric of the buildings, from the fixtures and fittings to the most advanced technology for diagnosis and treatment, including imaging and surgery.

New, mobile technology will change how patients journey through our hospitals, communicate with our staff and receive treatment and care. It will enable our clinicians to offer more personalised care in the safest, most efficient ways.

Inspiring surroundings

There’s a wealth of evidence to show that our surroundings have an effect on the way we feel. Our new hospital buildings will be designed to let in as much natural light as possible with views of the outside and places to sit, relax, shop or have a coffee inside.

It will also be designed to be flexible, so that in some areas we will be able to add or remove walls to change the space. This means it will be easy and efficient to update our facilities, technology and equipment as our patients’ needs change or grow.
