Welcome to the Leeds Academic Health Partnership

One of the biggest partnerships of its kind in the UK

Working as one city to improve people’s health and wellbeing

Leeds is at the forefront of health and social care innovation.  Collaboration, world class research, cutting – edge practice and a real commitment to our people mean that we are creating the conditions for great ideas to be transformed into life – changing initiatives.

The Leeds Academic Health Partnership (LAHP) harnesses the full potential of the city’s assets by bringing together our three universities, NHS organisations and the City Council to create an ambitious alliance.




Using our individual and collective expertise we identify, attract and implement innovation and inward investment that responds to the challenges facing health and care, both today and in the future.

By engaging the educational and research capabilities of our universities with the health and care system, we accelerate the adoption of research and new approaches. We take what we learn locally and share it nationally and internationally, helping to drive economic growth and improve the lives of people everywhere, particularly ensuring that those who are the poorest improve their health the fastest.
