Here at Leeds Community Healthcare (LCH), we are working in partnership with Leeds City Council, primary care, education, third sector and other services to be the best city in the UK for children and young people to grow up in.
Our service philosophy and approach is placing the child and family at the centre of delivery of care. Under the current Covid-19 circumstances this is particularly important and requires great flexibility and the ability to adapt to changing circumstances.
