The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust

Location and plans

Our new hospital buildings will be developed on the site of the Old Nurses’ Home at Leeds General Infirmary.

This building, like a number of others on the site, is extremely old and doesn’t meet the standards needed for modern healthcare. As part of our proposals, we will be identifying the buildings we can no longer use for modern healthcare. Some of these will make way for our new hospitals or be sympathetically redeveloped.

Some of our old buildings – like the Gilbert Scott building – are landmarks in Leeds. Even though we cannot use them for healthcare, we plan to bring them back to life, finding innovative uses for them that focus on the vision for the Innovation District.

We have submitted an Outline Planning Application for the development to Leeds City Council. To access it, click here and in the keyword box type in Leeds General Infirmary. The application will appear at the top of the results (Reference: 19/01242/OT). Please note that the deadline for comments has now passed.
