We are the charity of Leeds Teaching Hospitals

As the charity of Leeds Teaching Hospitals, we provide support for eight areas which include Leeds General Infirmary, Leeds Children’s Hospital, Leeds Cancer Centre, St James’s University Hospital, Chapel Allerton Hospital, Seacroft Hospital, Wharfdale Hospital and Leeds Dental Institute.

We support NHS staff to deliver the best care for over a million patients and their families each year. Working with local communities, schools and businesses across the city and beyond, each year we provide £5 million in additional funding for Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust.

Through generous donations we have funded life saving equipment, research fellowships, state-of-the-art technology and improvements to the patient environment. Every penny donated to Leeds Cares helps to support the hard-working staff at our hospitals and enhance the experience of patients and their families.
