What we do
As one of the country's leading teaching hospitals, Leeds General Infirmary (LGI) has an international reputation for its expertise in a range of specialist services for which the hospital is a regional centre.
Central to the site is the Jubilee Building, which brings together many of the country's leading experts in caring for critically ill patients. The helipad on the roof of the building has seen thousands of flights by air ambulances, bringing patients from across the Yorkshire region and beyond to be treated by experts at the Leeds Major Trauma Centre, which is the second largest in the UK.
Cardiac services are also located in the Jubilee wing and include some of the largest services in the country for Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation and Percutaneous Coronary Intervention.
The LGI has a large and busy Emergency Department for adults, and next to it is a separate dedicated facility for children up of the age of 16, adjacent to the facilities of the Leeds Children's Hospital. It is also a specialist regional centre for a number of complex conditions, as well as providing many general acute hospital services such as intensive care, state of the art operating theatres and a high dependency unit.
The hospital is a regional tertiary centre for Neurosciences, which includes services for spinal surgery, neurosurgery, neurology and stroke.
The Leeds General Infirmary also has one of the best-known maternity units in the country thanks to its exposure on the Channel 4 series One Born Every Minute.
We were the first in the country to perform the first double hand transplants, thanks to pioneering expert care by our teams on the hand and plastics units.
