The University Hospitals of Leicester is one of the largest teaching Trusts in the UK. It has a vision to deliver Caring at its best at 3 sites and employs over 12000 staff. Interventional Radiology provides 24/7 support for trauma, vascular, musculoskeletal, renal, Hepato-biliary, urology, oncology, obstetric and paediatric services. We work 08.30 – 17.00 Monday – Friday and participate in an on call rota which works out to 3 or 4 on calls per month. This post would involve working at Leicester General Hospital with the potential to work across site. We have a day case unit on this site and look after a variety of inpatients. Hepato-biliary and urology patients will be moving from Leicester General Hospital to a brand new department at Glenfield Hospital in 2021.

We have 3 Interventional Radiology rooms with Siemens equipment and are currently in the process of a room replacement and a refurbishment of the day case unit.

We encourage extended roles and have staff performing change of nephrostomy catheters, barium swallows, gastric band adjustment and hysterosalpingograms. We are working towards training radiographers to do sialograms, cystograms, feeding tube changes and NG tube insertion.
