St James University Hospital

Referral/Teaching Hospital | Leeds, United Kingdom

Hospital description

The building is generally regarded as “Europe’s largest teaching hospital” has a world renowned reputation as a centre for medical research and education. It is home to a number of specialist units providing care for patients from across the Yorkshire region and beyond.

For example, St. James’ houses the Yorkshire regional transplant service, providing tertiary services for kidney transplants and is also a designated national site for adult and paediatric liver transplantation.

The St James’s Institute of Oncology, based in the new £220 million Bexley Wing, was officially opened by HRH The Princess Royal in summer 2008. This striking building provides a world-class service to patients from across the region, and replaced outdated facilities formerly provided at Cookridge Hospital.

Currently work is underway to centralise older people’s services and acute medicine at the hospital, as part of a complex scheme which will also see all children’s hospital services from St James’s moved across the city to join those at Leeds General Infirmary.
