St James's University Hospital is no doubt part of one of the busiest acute hospitals in the country.

St James's and Seacroft Hospitals Trust recently merged with the other acute hospitals Trust in Leeds, United Leeds Teaching Hospitals to form the largest Trust in the UK, the Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust, which has 15,000 staff and a budget of £426 million.

Serving the population of Leeds, the Trust has many specialist services as well as two busy Accident and Emergency departments. From leading transplant surgery and genetic research breakthroughs to cancer treatment and world-renowned orthopaedic surgery and much more besides, the Trust offers NHS treatment to not only people in the Yorkshire region but around the country and the world.

Only a few years ago, St James's Hospital provided expert help to the first influx of casualties of the Bosnian war and two years ago performed the UK's first triple transplant (liver, small bowel and pancreas) on an Irish man who was diagnosed with multiple organ cancer.

Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust continues to make the headlines today as new Chief Executive, David Johnson manages an NHS Trust almost 50 per cent bigger than the next largest.

Our webcam tunes in to the reception area of the Gledhow Wing at St James's - the main entrance to the site - where patients, families and friends can shop at the newsagents, bookshop and pharmacy, undertake transactions at the bank or pop into the cafe for a cup of tea. As you'll see, this is a busy environment daily traversed by thousands of people.
