Leeds NHS Trust reveals grand plans for healthcare innovations at new hospital developments
Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust has unveiled early plans for two new hospitals at the Leeds General Infirmary (LGI), aiming to improve healthcare for patients in the Leeds area through implementing the latest healthcare innovations.
The NHS Trust recently submitted an online publication of its Outline Planning Application (OPA) for the development by Leeds City Council.
Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust is aiming to build a new adults’ hospital and a new Leeds Children’s Hospital, which form part of the development for the Trust’s 10-year plan to transform healthcare for patients in Leeds and the wider region called Hospitals of the Future.
They aim to support future healthcare patients and are built around the latest technologies and innovations to offer patients the most advanced, personalised care.
The two new hospitals will also play an important role in Leeds’ emerging Innovation District, an area around the LGI that will be developed to be a hub for health research, innovation and technology.
Linda Pollard, CBE DL Hon LLD, Chair of Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, said: “The potential of this development is enormous, not only for the future of health services for patients in Leeds and beyond, but also for skills and investment it will bring to the city and the vital role it will play in establishing the Innovation District.”
