Health Innovation Leeds is a new, cross-sector partnership approach to securing influence and investment by showcasing the city’s growing strengths and opportunities in this sector.

Health Innovation Leeds is the name and brand identity for Leeds’ internationally-renowned health and care research and innovation.

  • Its strengths in healthtech, digital, data and artificial intelligence are market-leading.
  • It has an established and burgeoning industry cluster, world-class academic research and a single, integrated health and care partnership, all nested within state-of-the-art facilities, supportive infrastructure and a UK-leading fintech hub.
  • Its demography mirrors that of the UK, making it an ideal place for innovation: to start small, trial new ideas, and scale fast.
  • It is underpinned by a strong talent pool, a culture of cross-sector collaboration and inclusion, and a shared focus on reducing health inequalities.

These cornerstones position Health Innovation Leeds at the forefront of advancing health and care for all. Health Innovation Leeds is supported by Leeds Academic Health Partnership (LAHP). LAHP is one of the biggest partnerships of its kind in the UK and the only one in Yorkshire and Humber.
