Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust is an NHS hospital trust in Leeds, West Yorkshire, England.

Patient Catering display June 2013

The Trust was formed in April 1998 after the merger of two previous smaller NHS trusts to form one city-wide organisation. The former trusts were United Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust (based at Leeds General Infirmary) and St James's & Seacroft University Hospitals NHS Trust (based at St James's University Hospital).

It provides services for the population of Leeds and surrounding areas, and is a regional centre for a range of services including cancer, neurosurgery, heart surgery, liver and kidney transplantation. It is the largest NHS trust in the United Kingdom (technically NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde is the largest[1] territorial NHS provider but is not a 'trust'), and employs over 14,000 staff on six main sites.

It runs six hospitals:

The Trust has had difficulty gaining Foundation Trust status because of failures to hit key financial and performance targets which caused the Chief Executive Maggie Boyle to resign in June 2013.[2]

In October 2013 as a result of the Keogh Review the Trust was put into the highest risk category by the Care Quality Commission.[3]

The Trust was highlighted by NHS England as having 3 of the 148 reported never events in the period from April to September 2013.[4]

The trust was one of five to benefit from a five-year, £12.5m programme announced by Jeremy Hunt in July 2015 to bring in Virginia Mason Medical Center to assist English using their clinical engagement and culture tools including the Patient Safety Alert System and electronic dashboard. Hunt said “The achievements at Virginia Mason over the past decade are truly inspirational and I’m delighted they will now help NHS staff to learn the lessons that made their hospital one of the safest in the world – patients will see real benefits as a result.” [5]
