Leeds General Infirmary :: Shared Description

A major teaching hospital situated on the western edge of Leeds City Centre, the LGI (as it is locally known) boasts that it has been "saving lives for 250 years". Its origins are in an Infirmary “for the relief of the sick and hurt poor within the parish of Leeds” in a private house in Kirkgate in 1767. It was soon replaced with a purpose-built hospital opened in 1771 close to City Square, which in turn was replaced by the present main building on Great George Street, designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott and opened in 1863. The hospital has expanded several times since, including the Brotherton Wing in 1940 and the Jubilee Wing in 1998. The Seacroft Hospital opened in 1904 to the east of the city and is now part of the same NHS trust.
