Leicester

Set in the heart of England, the vibrant and historic city of Leicester has a wealth of leisure and shopping facilities, is well connected to London and other major cities and it is a great place to live, work and play.

We are one of the biggest and busiest NHS Trusts in the country, serving the one million residents of Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland – and increasingly specialist services over a much wider area.

Spread over the General, Glenfield and Royal Infirmary hospitals, we also have our very own Children’s Hospital and work closely with partners at the University of Leicester and De Montfort University providing world-class teaching to nurture and develop the next generation of doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals, many of whom go on to spend their working lives with us.

We continue to work with many different organisations throughout the world to push the boundaries of research and new surgical procedures for the benefit of our patients. Areas of world-renowned expertise include diabetes, genetics, cancer and cardio-respiratory diseases. We are now home to three NIHR (National Institute of Health Research) Biomedical Research Units and during the year we carried out more than 800 clinical trials, involving thousands of our patients who are among the first to try the latest medicines and techniques.

Our heart centre at the Glenfield hospital continues to lead the way in developing new and innovative research and techniques, such as surgery with a Robotic Arm, TAVI (Trans-Catheter Aortic Valve Insertion) and the use of the suture less valve in heart surgery. It has also become one of the world’s busiest ECMO (extra corporeal membrane oxygenation) centres and the only hospital in the UK to provide ECMO therapy for both adults and children.

We have one of the best vascular services nationally, with more patients surviving longer after following an aneurysm repair (to fix a life threatening bulge in a blood vessel). And we are proud to continue to have some of the lowest rates of hospital-acquired infections, such as C.Difficile and MRSA, in the country.

Our purpose is to provide ‘Caring at its best’ and our staff have helped us create a set of values that embody who we are and what we’re here to do. They are:

  • We focus on what matters most
  • We treat others how we would like to be treated
  • We are passionate and creative in our work
  • We do what we say we are going to do
  • We are one team and we are best when we work together

Our patients are at the heart of all we do and we believe that ‘Caring at its Best’ is not just about the treatments and services we provide, but about giving our patients the best possible experience. That’s why we’re proud to be part of the NHS and we’re proud to be Leicester’s Hospitals.
