And today the chief executive of Leeds Hospitals Charity has announced a new £30m fundraising campaign to take our new children’s hospital to the next level.

As the groundwork is already under way, the charity is hoping to raise enough money to buy state-of-the-art equipment for the new site and its young patients.

Among its wishlist items are two surgical robots with a £5m price tag and specialist scanners.

Leeds is already home to some of the leading children’s surgeons in Europe and now the charity is setting its sights on making the new hospital and its facilities a real world leader.

At the heart of these plans are the young people themselves and ensuring they and their families receive exceptional healthcare.

All young people deserve the best possible start to life, so now is the time to dig deep and help achieve this ambition.
