LCPs build the strengths and extensive history of collaboration in the city to realise some of the most exciting, per son centred transformation in health and care. Currently, LCP'S across Leeds are at different stages of development, and therefore each have different support and development needs.

You will be part of a new focused team from different backgrounds across health, social care, third sector and academia to support this important work.
