People making the number one

Leeds Health and Care One Workforce brings together partners from the NHS, local government, primary care, independent care providers, the third sector and education to support, develop and grow our city’s health and social care workforce. 

Through collaboration, we create positive change within Leeds and enable our workforce to thrive. Working across organisational boundaries, together we strive for Leeds to be a healthy and caring city for all ages, where people who are the poorest improve their health the fastest.

Our ambition

Leeds will be the best city for training and working in the sector, with progressive, diverse careers for all students and staff, inspiring the next generation of health and care workers. It will be a healthy and caring city for all ages, where people who are the poorest improve their health the fastest.

Working collaboratively with partners, we provide opportunities for skills, jobs and wealth creation, engaging and recruiting those in our most disadvantaged communities and inspiring the next generation health and care workforce. This will ensure we have the highly diverse, skilled workforce we need to work with the people of Leeds, now and in the future.

We are committed to working together as equals, recognising the strength and value of our partners as well as the wonderful diversity of the people of Leeds.
