About NHS Leeds
With a budget of over £1 billion, NHS Leeds is one of the largest primary care trusts (PCT) in the country and commissions healthcare services for over 750,000 Leeds residents.
NHS Leeds (previously known as Leeds Primary Care Trust) was created on 1 October 2006, following the merger of Leeds North West, Leeds West, Leeds North East, East Leeds and South Leeds Primary Care Trusts (PCTs).
NHS Leeds employs around 700 staff in a wide range of occupations and professions. They hold contracts to provide services with independent contractors including 146 general practitioners (GP) surgeries, 104 dental practices, 165 pharmacies and 87 opticians. They also undertake a broad range of public health initiatives to improve the health and quality of life of local people.
On 1st October 2008 Leeds PCT changed their name to NHS Leeds, although their registered legal name is still Leeds Primary Care Trust. The name changed as a result of a national survey that showed that patients and the public were unclear about what primary care trusts are and do. Changing their name helped people recognise NHS Leeds as the organisation responsible for funding and planning NHS services in the city and improving the health and wellbeing of the local population.
