David Welch – My Vision

I am extremely proud and privileged to be Chief Executive of Leeds Cares – an organisation which positively impacts so many people, not only in Leeds but across Yorkshire and beyond.

Together, we are building a dynamic and progressive organisation dedicated to exceptional healthcare that works in partnership with Leeds Teaching Hospitals, one of the largest and most successful NHS trusts in the country, to enhance the health and wellbeing of our communities.

Our NHS is a national treasure and vital part of our society and culture; with inspirational and dedicated staff who provide the very best treatment and care.  It impacts our lives from the beginning to the end and often in between.

Because we are living longer with access to more treatments and new technologies, the demands on our NHS are growing.

This means we all need to think differently about how we can best contribute, to ensure the provision of the very best healthcare whenever we need it.

From the heart of Yorkshire, Leeds Cares inspires change, enables collaboration, supports innovation and influences policy and best practice in healthcare, helping people to lead fulfilling lives.

Together we can achieve great things and I very much hope that you will be encouraged, motivated and inspired to join us.

Thank you.

David Welch
Chief Executive
