UNIVERSITY HOSPITALS OF LEICESTER NHS TRUST

Consultant in Anaesthesia

Applications are invited for a whole-time or part time Consultant in Anaesthesia.

It is an exciting time to join our welcoming and friendly team of 59 Anaesthetic consultants based at the Leicester Royal Infirmary. The successful candidates will support the current establishment of NHS and academic staff contributing to the on-call rota, and provide senior anaesthetic cover for elective, emergency and trauma surgery.

Leicester Royal infirmary is one of the very largest NHS Trust acute hospitals with a busy emergency department. There are opportunities for the successful candidate to deliver clinical care on emergency and trauma lists and gain further experience and expertise in a variety of specialities, including upper and lower GI surgery, maxillofacial and ENT, plastics and ophthalmology.

The scope of surgical practice at the hospitals offers exciting and varied clinical opportunities for consultant anaesthetists and there is continued support for non-clinical professional activities both inside and outside the trust.

UHL is fully committed to continuing medical education for consultants. The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to departmental quality improvement activity and the clinical supervision of postgraduate trainees in Anaesthesia. The UHL Department of Anaesthesia is committed to working towards the Anaesthesia Clinical Services Accreditation scheme of the Royal College of Anaesthetists.

 

Every day at University Hospitals of Leicester we save lives, improve lives and usher in new life. Our Trust Values determine our behaviour and our culture. We are a passionate and creative team and at our best when we work together.

We want to continue to improve everything that we do, so that we can achieve our Vision: Caring at its best for every patient, every time. Our Quality Strategy, “Becoming the Best”, describes how we are doing that in a determined, targeted and systematic way, with our staff the champions of change and our patients not just beneficiaries but partners.

This is particularly exciting time for Leicester’s Hospitals. We have been given £450m by the Government to provide a host of new facilities and reconfigure services between our three main sites. Flagship projects include a new Children’s Hospital, a new Maternity Hospital, a new Treatment Centre and two new Intensive Care Units. Equally importantly, we are going “paperless”, with a £12m investment in our NerveCentre computer system to help our team deliver world class care.

 

If you are ambitious about what you do and strive to improve patient experience bring your dedication and determination here and you will benefit from the support of an experienced and enthusiastic multi-professional team committed to the delivery of brilliant patient care.
