Sharing best practice

Leeds’ health and care system has a strong reputation across the country.  This means we regularly host and help others to find out more about what we do and share ideas.  At the same time Leeds is always keen to learn from what is going well elsewhere.  Leeds continues to be part of a network of Integrated Care ‘Pioneer’ areas across the country.

More information on the Leeds Pioneer Programme can be found here.


As we look to make changes to health and social care in Leeds, we are having conversations citywide with members of the public, healthcare professionals and partner organisations.

The findings from many of these discussions can be found here.
