This is where you need Ancestry. You can bring up the film strip of the
record, and go back to the first page, which reveals that John Leonard was
at Sheffield Union Workhouse, Fir Vale, Sheffield. As far as I know,
Findmypast do not have the cover pages for the census.
As someone pointed out on the Ancestry v Findmypast thread, both sites have
their strengths and weaknesses and here's a prime example.

Hello - My grandmother, her siblings and mother were all listed on
census as inmates as they were in the Highworth Workhouse in Swindon.
I went to see the actual Workhouse records in the Swindon History Centre
which were fascinating.
If you look on here http://www.workhouses.org.uk/Highworth/
and type in
area or town, it will give you a short history plus an indication of whoch
records still exist and where they are. Infirmaries may well be listed
here. I found out so much when I read the entries and suggest you too try
and get to see them. My grandmother knew nothing of her real mother or that
she had siblings, and I have connected with relatives of these siblings and
learned more about her brother and sister.
This is the first time I have contributed to this email thread, so I do
hope this is what you are looking for.
