In a pioneering approach, we’re developing ‘one Leeds workforce’ across the health and care sector. The vision is that through our new Leeds Health and Care Academy, around 57,000 staff will have the best skills founded upon the best research and evidence, to care for the people of Leeds.

The health and care system in England is facing some of the biggest challenges in its history. People are living longer, but not necessarily healthier lives. We must innovate to find transformative, sustainable solutions.

As a collaborative partnership between three Leeds universities, our health and care organisations and the City Council, we have world-class expertise at our fingertips. We discover solutions that operate at the limits of science, uniting the full research and educational expertise of our universities with the strengths of our health and care system.
