A groundbreaking collaboration of health, care and university partners across the city of Leeds is helping to enhance the local workforce.
The Leeds Health and Care Academy is spearheading a new and shared way of thinking, learning and working together across the city’s health and care sector.
The University of Leeds is a key partner in positioning the Academy at the forefront of learning, with a portfolio based on world-leading evidence, research and education.
The Academy, believed to be the first of its kind, is bringing together and transforming the learning and development for the 57,000 strong healthcare workforce across Leeds. In doing so, it underpins the city’s aim to benefit citizens by creating ‘one workforce’ across health and care – a citywide team working across organisational boundaries.
The Academy is a project of the Leeds Academic Health Partnership, which includes three Leeds universities, the city’s three NHS trusts, NHS Leeds Clinical Commissioning Group and the City Council.
