Our Recent Projects
For a number of years, paediatric teams looking after sick children in Yorkshire have been working to bring all specialist services together into a dedicated children's hospital in Leeds. Unfortunately, building a separate children's hospital has not been financially viable, but Leeds Teaching Hospitals have now brought all children's services onto one site at The General Infirmary. This means all important subspecialties are on the same site and children no longer need to be transferred across the city to receive care from another team. New wards have been built to accommodate the services previously based at St James including the Cystic Fibrosis Unit. Children can now be seen more easily, if necessary, by cardiologists, surgeons and intensive care doctors. The new wards are designed to specifically meet the needs of children with cystic fibrosis with special facilities to reduce the risk for cross infection. There is a new residential facility for families so that they can stay near to their critically ill child.
