2018 is an incredibly exciting and historic year for both the Charitable Foundation and the Trust, and none of this would be possible without the on-going generosity, support and passion of the fantastic staff that work here at Leeds Teaching Hospitals. We hope that you will join us on our journey as we continue to support everyone at Leeds Teaching Hospitals in putting patients and families at the heart of what we all do.– David Welch, Chief Executive Officer
