The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust

A tribute to Dr Kate Granger

24 July 2016

Julian Hartley, Chief Executive at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust said:

“I am so sorry to hear that Kate has passed away.  She has been an inspiration to so many people during her all too short life and has achieved so much.  Kate was an outstanding doctor here in Leeds, a committed fundraiser for our Yorkshire Cancer Centre Appeal and a true champion for patients everywhere.

“I spent a great deal of time with Kate whilst promoting #hellomynameis at Leeds and was hugely impressed by her tireless commitment to improve things for the better.  Her campaign started as a result of her experience as a patient in Leeds and I am proud that almost 13,000 members of our staff have now signed up and pledged their support to her lasting legacy."
