At the heart of innovation

Hospitals at the heart of innovation.

The new hospital development at the Leeds General Infirmary will release around five hectares of land for development to support a new Innovation District for Leeds.

This is a strategic collaboration between the Trust, the universities in Leeds and Leeds City Council focused on regeneration.

Working together, we will build on our strong partnerships in medicine, health and technology research to draw new businesses and investment to the Innovation District, creating jobs and wealth for Leeds.

The area will be a hub for healthcare talent, industry partnerships, research and training.

Over time, the Leeds Innovation District will be developed to become a vibrant part of the city and an area where people want to live, work and relax.

The Innovation District is expected to deliver £3.3 billion Gross Value Added benefits and create an additional 3,500 jobs for Leeds and the wider region.*
