LTHT contribute to life in the Leeds city region, not only by employing over 18,000 people in a range of different roles, but by supporting the health and well-being of the region and playing a leading role in research, education and innovation. The Trust treats around one and a half million patients a year.
LTHT expertise and specialist services allow the Trust to care for people from all over the country and on some occasions all over the world, but they are also the provider of district general hospital services for the people of Leeds. There are seven hospitals within the Trust; Leeds General Infirmary, St James’s University Hospital, Seacroft Hospital, Wharfedale Hospital, Chapel Allerton Hospital, Leeds Children’s Hospital and Leeds Dental Institute.
Vision and Values
LTHT is committed to delivering the highest quality and safest treatment and care to every patient, every time.
Their vision is to be the best in the United Kingdom for specialist and integrated care - not only for patients in Leeds, but also for those from the wider Yorkshire and Humber region and beyond.
To achieve this vision, the Trust set out their five-year strategy for the Trust. Their staff helped to define the values and behaviours that they all work to and that form the foundations of their culture, their ethos and how they will work for the benefit of patients for years to come. This is known as The Leeds Way.
