The new hospital buildings will be developed on the site of the Old Nurses’ Home.
The first building at the Leeds General Infirmary will be a new dedicated children’s hospital to bring together staff and services from the existing children’s hospital within the Martin and Clarendon wings.
A second building project will be joined to the Jubilee Wing of the main hospital. Its facilities will include a new theatre suite for day case procedures, endoscopy and radiology services, and an outpatients department with services like pharmacy.
Planning consultant Lichfields worked closely with the Trust, architect and technical advisors in delivering the submission.
Leeds City Council’s planning department will now consider the plans while the Trust works on submitting an outline business case for the development. This will then be subject to the appropriate NHS review and approvals process.
The development of the new hospitals is part of an ambitious 10-year programme to transform healthcare for patients in Leeds and the wider region called, Hospitals of the Future.
