Our Five Year Strategy

Over the last five years we’ve seen fantastic achievements across the Trust. Major investments in research and innovation, pioneering treatments, brand new facilities and high-quality care have been consistently delivered across the Trust.

We have secured £600m of investment to build our two new hospitals at Leeds General Infirmary.

Looking ahead, The Leeds Way will continue to inform all we do to deliver our vision to be the best for specialist and integrated care. Being patient centred, fair, collaborative, accountable and empowered runs through everything we do. If we get this right, Leeds Teaching Hospitals will increasingly become the best for patient safety and quality, the best place to work, a place for seamless integrated care, a centre of excellence for research and education and financially sustainable.
