Leeds Academic Health Partnership highlights research work by Leeds Beckett to help improve healthcare in Leeds
The aim of the LAHP is to help reduce health inequalities, drive economic growth that benefits all our communities and to improve the quality and efficiency of our health and care services. They want to solve the city’s hardest health and care challenges by uniting the academic strengths with those of the health and care system and industry partners.
Peter Slee, Vice-Chancellor of Leeds Beckett University, said: The pandemic’s disproportionate impact on the elderly and the disadvantaged in our society demonstrates the critical importance of a joined-up health service. The Leeds Academic Health Partnership provides a unique link between our universities, and the healthcare and industry sectors across the city. It opens up important opportunities to deploy our world-leading and internationally excellent research for the benefit of people in Leeds.
“It reinforces our position as a strong, regional university always focused on having the biggest societal impact on the city and region we love.”
Leeds Beckett is one of the founding partners of the LAHP which also includes Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, NHS Leeds Clinical Commissioning Group, Leeds Community Healthcare NHS Trust, The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, Leeds City Council, Leeds Trinity University and the University of Leeds.
