Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust (LTHT) was formed in April 1998, following the merger of two smaller NHS trusts in the city. Today, it is one of the largest teaching hospitals in Europe, a regional and national centre for specialist treatment, a renowned biomedical research facility, and the local hospital for the Leeds community.
Every year, LTHT provides healthcare and specialist services for people from the city of Leeds, Yorkshire and the Humber and beyond. The Trust plays an important role in the training and education of medical, nursing and dental students and it is a centre of world-class research, pioneering new treatments.
1.5 million patients are treated every year, including more than 200,000 emergency patients. The Trust spends around £1.34 billion of NHS money, treating illness and disease in Leeds and on specialised services for people across Yorkshire and the Humber and nationally. LTHT employs more than 20,000 staff and works with academia and industry to play a leading role in education, research and innovation.
One of the best places I have worked
Worked for the domestic team on a weekend so only did 14 hours. Was good environment to work in, enjoyed making friends and preforming a duty for the public. Supervisors were good at their job but under a lot of pressure from management on more than one occasion.
You were always thanked for doing a good job, patients, ward staff and supervisors were always firm but fair.
enhancement for weekend working, good money, good environment to work in, career progression and qualifications
weekend working, hard tedious work, extra work load with no enhancements
A busy level 1 trauma centre
The best place to be as a surgical trainee. As a level 1 trauma centre in the vast Yorkshire area, Leeds General Infirmary receives patients with the most severe trauma or most complicated medical conditions every day. You can learn and improve a lot by working here as a junior doctor.
Management can be very demanding an over powering.
Demand for housekeepers/domestic assistants is at a high, work load can be busy, stressful but very rewarding when staff praise you.
NHS say they want you to climb ladders when you get into it, ive been working with them since 2015 still no luck with them not even an interview.
Staff discount, Part of NHS
Long hours, Busy, Stressful
I worked for the NHS for 19 years
I worked for Leeds Teaching Hospital for 11 years and I enjoyed working there. I worked first in theatres, then on ward 15 and then the walk in centre. In each working place I gained a lot of knowledge and experience to help me in my job.
working with a good team
parking and twilight shift pattern.
Great staff and loyalty
The nhs is a very rewarding place to work as u not only get job satisfaction you also get to meet lots of patients which can be very interesting ,but its very full on work and you very rarely get 5 minutes as its busy ,it can be very hard espically when your short staffed .
But you can also have lots of laughs with colleagues and patients.
Great job satisfaction and benifets
