The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust

The Leeds Way

Our Vision is to be the best for specialist and integrated care.

The Leeds Way is who we are and what we believe. It defines how we work to deliver the best possible care and outcomes for our patients. The Leeds Way is about listening and being inclusive and taking on board the very best ideas out there.

The Leeds Way was developed by our people, using the latest crowdsourcing technology to undertake our largest staff engagement programme.

There are well recognised links between engaged staff and improved patient care so we needed all of our staff to believe in our vision and values to help us achieve our goals. We asked them to describe the behaviors and leadership they believed were needed to be the very best and to achieve our vision. The strength of The Leeds Way is that it has been created by our people.

The Leeds Way is embedding well across the Trust and we are incredibly proud to see how people have truly embraced the values and associated behaviours in their day-to-day work.

Our nursing, midwifery and allied health professionals have also launched ‘Caring The Leeds Way’ making a professional commitment to live our values in caring for our patients.
