University Hospitals of Leicester
Neonatal Transport

An exciting opportunity has arisen to embark on a neonatal transport fellowship the CenTre Neonatal Transport service hosted by University Hospitals of Leicester NHS trust. This programme is 1 year in duration but shorter or longer periods are negotiable.

The CenTre neonatal transport service provides a standalone transport team, covering the 14 neonatal units across the Midlands. The service was established in April 2010. We perform around 1700 transfers annually, making us one of the busiest services in UK. Teams are dispatched from Nottingham City Hospital and Leicester Royal infirmary. The transport service is hosted by the University of Leicester NHS trust which also host a busy tertiary neonatal intensive care unit, paediatric cardiology service, paediatric ECMO and PICU. The south base of the transport service is in close proximity to the neonatal intensive care unit at Leicester Royal Infirmary which is a busy tertiary unit. The unit is a tertiary perinatal neonatal intensive centre within the East Midlands Neonatal ODN and is the largest perinatal surgical centre within this network with a catchment area of 2.5 million people (excluding Cardiac and Neurosurgery). There are over 100 surgical referrals per year. There is a comprehensive Feto-Maternal Medicine service. The unit offers a full range of intensive care including HFOV, Nitric Oxide and therapeutic hypothermia. There is close liaison with the ECMO unit at Glenfield Hospital 3 miles away.

We will close vacancies prior to the published closing date if we receive a sufficient number of completed application forms.

Preference will be given in the first instance to existing NHS employees within the East Midlands healthcare community who are ‘at risk’ of redundancy. Such employees within the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust will be considered first.”
