Welcome to the Leeds Health and Care Academy
We design and deliver learning and development opportunities and collaborative workforce projects for all health and care staff and organisations across the city of Leeds.
We work on behalf of the entire Leeds health and care sector. Our partners include the Leeds NHS Trusts, Leeds City Council, the ICB in Leeds and the city’s colleges and universities, as well as third and independent sector organisations.
Our purpose is to create better integration of the health and social care workforce in Leeds and realise the potential of our One Workforce through planning, delivering and learning together.
