The Leicester Children’s Hospital is predominantly based on the Leicester Royal Infirmary (LRI) site (cardiology service currently still at Glenfield site). It provides secondary and tertiary services to the Leicestershire and Rutland communities. It also works in partnership with surrounding NHS Trusts to provide care to patients from further afield. The Leicester Children’s Hospital Project will relocate the cardiac service to the LRI site and aims to bring about a dramatic improvement in all the inpatient and outpatient facilities over the next 3 years. The University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust consists of three acute teaching hospitals in Leicester. It is fully committed to Continuing Medical Education for consultants.

The successful appointee will be expected to participate in undergraduate and postgraduate teaching, research and clinical audit.

Applications received after this date will not be considered.
