The Adults’ Hospital

This is proposed to be joined onto the Leeds General Infirmary, Jubilee Wing.

Developing An Innovation District

Julian Hartley, chief executive of Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, has said, “this is a historic development in the future of patient care in Leeds and the wider region. This investment will enable the Trust to take a huge leap forward in how it delivers care for patients from Leeds and beyond.”

Furthermore, “the benefits of this funding will be far-reaching. Leeds is a renowned centre for specialist services; providing treatment and care for patients from across the region. Also from the North of England and in some instances, the rest of the UK”. Further adding, “we will be able to develop healthcare based on advanced medical and digital technologies, innovation and research.”

Linda Pollard, Chair of Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, stated that “it will help Leeds to take a huge leap forward in developing an Innovation District. Putting the city at the forefront of developing health-tech and research. As well as attracting investment, skills and jobs to our region”. Further adding that it was a once-in-a-generation opportunity for Leeds. The Trust had a number of stages to complete before it could start building the new hospitals. But expected to take around three years once underway is the build.

 

What is property investment?

Put simply, property investment is property purchased with the intention of generating financial returns for its buyer. These returns could be in the form of rental income through buy-to-let properties, house price growth through the future sale of the property or both. Property investments can be owned by individuals or organisations and can be short, long or medium term.
