As you may know, Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust is planning to build two new hospitals at Leeds General Infirmary (LGI). This change provides us with an opportunity to improve the way we deliver maternity and neonatal services in Leeds.
We are planning to:
centralise maternity and neonatal services in LGI so that all services are in one place and we can keep families together when they need to use neonatal services
build a brand new midwifery-led unit at LGI
consult on the way we provide hospital antenatal services
keep community antenatal services the same
