University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a highly motivated and dynamic individual to apply for ST3+ Registrar to work in the Vascular Surgery Service within University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust.

This is an opportunity to consolidate clinical skills in a centre with a strong track record of research and training. We are looking for an enthusiastic, self-motivated trainee seeking a long-term career in Vascular Surgery.

The post is clinically orientated and intended for trainees to gain either additional clinical experience prior to obtaining an ST3 post in Vascular Surgery, to spend a period of time out of programme in an alternative training environment or to consolidate clinical skills prior to taking up a consultant level appointment.

The post holder will participate in the effective running of the department with a commitment to the management of patients. We have a 33 bed ward, state of the art hybrid theatre and angio suite and dedicated emergency clinics. We are ambitious, progressive and committed to continuing our quality journey so that we can exceed our patient’s expectations.

This post will be for a period of 12 months in the first instance, renewable subject to satisfactory performance.

The Leicester Vascular Surgery Unit is the largest and busiest unit in the East Midlands, delivering a secondary and tertiary vascular surgical service to a population in excess of 1.5 million. We have a reputation for excellence in clinical training and research. The unit has a good in-house clinical training programme to which trainees and consultants are invited, as well as access to the joint Midlands Vascular Training programme.
