Recognition is big in Leicester too, with a well-established commitment to the internationally recognised DAISY Awards and our own Caring at its Best awards programme amongst many of the ways great practice and compassionate care is rewarded.

Underpinning the development and support opportunities are great NHS terms and conditions, salary sacrifice schemes, pension and generous annual leave allowance.
