Leeds Community Healthcare NHS Trust aims to be a leading organisation, recognised by our patients for our quality of care.
We provide a range of community-based health services across the Leeds area and offer high quality healthcare in the most appropriate setting for our patients, whether that is in their own home, a local health centre, or a community hospital.
Working with other organisations such as Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, Leeds City Council and local charities, we make sure that if patients need to move between community care, hospital care or social care, they can do so quickly and easily.
Our purpose is to provide high quality community healthcare to the people of Leeds. We do this by working in partnership with other organisations and groups, involving and developing our staff, and using our resources wisely to continually improve our services.
We believe that:
- patients have the right to safe, evidence-based and innovative care
- patients should be guaranteed timely access to the most appropriate service for their needs
- staff should have access to relevant training and development which supports them to deliver excellent care
- we work best when we work with our patients, staff and others to develop and deliver services
We also provide health promotion and education services to improve the health and well-being of all the people in Leeds.
Our staff are based at health centres and community sites across the Leeds area, from Wetherby in the north to Ardsley in the south and from Kippax in the east to Guiseley in the west.
