With a clear vision to provide Caring at its Best, our strong values, ambitious quality improvement plans and multi million pound transformation agenda, there’s never been a better time to join University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust (UHL).

At the centre of the HIP will be a new hospital building programme, to ensure the NHS’ hospital estate supports the provision of world-class healthcare services. Under this approach, the Government has committed to build and fund 40 new hospitals over the next 10 years. Six major projects were given the go-ahead immediately in the first wave (HIP1) which includes funding for the reconfiguration of UHL.

The Trust is now about to embark on the most ambitious Programme of acute healthcare transformation culminating in new state of the art facilities for residents of Leicester, Leicestershire, Rutland and the wider region within a budget of will £450m.

The programme includes healthcare planning incorporating models of care, patient pathways and estates transformation to ensure the Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland healthcare needs are met.

To support delivery of this ambitious programme, UHL is investing in critical capacity and capability including Finance.

The overarching aim of this role is to act as the deputy to the Reconfiguration Head of Finance to provide financial leadership and expertise in the delivery of the Trust’s Reconfiguration Programme. This role incorporates supporting the financial input into the full range of major investment business case development incorporating clinically led reconfiguration requirements together with appropriate challenge, financial governance and engagement with internal and external stakeholders to ensure alignment to the programmes strategic objectives.
