Health and Innovation

As the UK’s first city of health and innovation, Leeds has a unique health and social care ecosystem and is proud of its collaboration across private, public and voluntary sectors. 

We are one of the recognised leaders in the UK in commissioning and delivering integrated health and social care services for the UK and internationally.

Uniquely, the city region is the headquarters to four of the five of the most important UK national health service bodies:

  • NHS England - responsible for over £100bn annual health care spend
  • Health & Social Care Information Centre – home of the national health and social care data collections
  • NHS Leadership Academy – responsible for leadership development and training throughout the NHS
  • Health Education England – the national body responsible for organising health and healthcare education and training

In addition to access to all of the above organisations located in Leeds, Leeds is also home to Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, which includes the largest teaching hospital in Europe.

Our event planners can work with these major national organisations, as well as other healthcare companies located in the city region, to plan a health or social care conference in the city which delivers an excellent programme for your delegates, adding value and ensuring their engagement.
