The Glenfield Hospital is a busy expanding site with a planned increase in service provision and currently has approximately 415 beds, provides a range of services for patients, including nationally recognised medical care for heart disease, lung cancer and breast care. Building work is commencing in 2019 to further include hepatobiliary and renal transplant cases.

The well-equipped Radiology Department is due to expand and the “plain film” aspect currently comprises of 3 twin plate wireless general DR rooms, 2 dedicated DR chest rooms, 1 fluoroscopy unit, 3 DR mobiles, 2 mobile C-arms and 2 CR/DR dental x-ray rooms. The workload includes direct GP walk-in access for MSK and chest examinations; a variety of out-patient & in-patient referrals, dental radiography and fluoroscopy procedures.

Some rotation between the plain film and cross-sectional team has been supported in the past for those who have requested it. Furthermore, the nearby Leicester Royal Infirmary has a busy Emergency Department and following a suitable induction period, there exists a potential opportunity for those who also wish to develop their trauma experience via an additional bank post.
