Thanks to the generous donations of patients, their families and the public; Leeds Children’s Hospital now has a new purpose-built hybrid theatre. The building was officially handed over to Leeds Teaching Hospitals last week, when Director of Strategy & Planning Simon Neville, took the ‘key’ from construction firm BAM.

Final touches and equipment are now being added to the build before the first patients are expected in the new year.

The new facility will be used by expert teams at Leeds Children’s Hospital to undertake complex heart and neurosurgical procedures on children and young people and will also house a cutting edge 3TMRi machine. It will transform care and treatment for young neurological and cardiac patients in Leeds.

The building of the Hybrid Theatre was made possible via funding given to the Trust from Leeds Cares, alongside fundraising from the Children’s Heart Surgery Fund.

CEO of Leeds Cares David Welch said “I was lucky enough to tour the new facility last week and it’s an incredible building that will clearly have huge benefit for hundreds of patients and families. We’re delighted that, through donations from our supporters and fundraisers, we were able to support this ground-breaking project”.

BAM construction have been a valued corporate supporter over the last year, supporting Leeds Children’s Hospital by choosing Leeds Cares as their ‘Charity of the Year’. The firm have raised an incredible £4,948.78 for Leeds Cares and this week made a donation of miniature diggers that will be used on several wards of the hospital.

Thank you for caring.
