We are looking for the right candidate to join our high-profile team at an exciting time.

The service currently provides all urological activity for Leicestershire, offering all sub-specialties. We are a tertiary referral centre for cancer, andrology, stones and female urology. We have our own on-site lithotripter.

We continue to expand our robotic surgery programme for major cancer, and work in partnership with other Trusts providing cancer services for Northamptonshire, Lincolnshire and more widely in some sub-specialist areas.

Autumn 2016 will see the launch of East Mercia Urology as a single department, bringing together urology expertise from Leicestershire and Lincolnshire. It will provide a population of over two million patients with access to specialist care including, but not limited to, robotic assisted surgery, lithotripsy and brachytherapy. We anticipate that recruitment, teaching and education and access to clinical trials will also be further strengthened by this Partnership

Urology currently has 11 Consultant Urological Surgeons and an Associate Specialist. They are supported by 2 Specialty Doctors,4 SpRs and 12 Junior Doctors and a team of Specialist Nurses. The department has a significant focus on research through clinical trials, clinical research and through strong links to Leicester and Nottingham Trent Universities.
